Our hours of operation have also changed, 7:30 am – 6:00 pm CST, Monday through Thursday. 

Due to Covid-19 precautions, our trainings are still being conducted via online Zoom meeting only. As such, the calendar linked here is our online calendar.

When we are able to meet again in person, local trainings will be accessible from this link.

Quality coaches help child care professionals build knowledge and skills, so they can better educate young children.

They inform families about what to look for in a child care program and how to identify quality, so they can make the best choice for their children. See below to contact a quality coach near you!

Shelby CCR&R provides free training and technical assistance to child care educators across the state to improve the quality of child care for all children.

We are located at 600 Jefferson Ave, 3rd floor, Memphis, TN. Inside the CCR&R you will find a lending library of resource materials ranging from teacher idea books, children’s books, and theme bags to a laminating machine and die cuts to enhance the environment.
