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!

Southwest CCR&R is located at 32 Garland Drive, Building A, Jackson, TN.

Technical Assistance (TA) and Targeted Technical Assistance (TTA) is provided by the quality coaches as requested. Throughout the year, materials and information are delivered to child care educators to assist with the current trends in health, safety and well-being, child development, early childhood education, inclusion practices, and developmentally appropriate behavior management.
