FAMILY MATTERS

Research shows that children who have families who are involved in their early education programs are more successful in school and in life.

CCR&R Family Engagement Quality Coaches work with child care educators to help them engage families in the activities of the child care facility. Through training and onsite coaching, child care educators can learn how to plan and facilitate activities that are engaging and beneficial for parents.

Finding quality child care can be difficult.  CCR&R Family Engagement Quality Coaches can provide families with valuable information on what to look for when choosing quality child care.  From deciding on what kind of child care is right for a family to providing a checklist of important things to look for, CCR&R Family Engagement Quality Coaches can guide families through the process of finding quality child care.
