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!

The Upper Cumberland Child Care Resource & Referral is committed to improving the quality of life for children through support and training of child care educators and collaboration with families, community, professional organizations, services, and resources. Our staff offers child care educators in the Upper Cumberland area the following services:

TN-CCPT workshops

These workshops typically offer two hours of training that have been approved by the Tennessee DHS.

On-site Consultations (postponed due to Covid-19 concerns)

Our Quality Coaches can arrange to come to your child care facility if you are having any issues or concerns for which you would like their help.
