Parent Café Experience

Welcome

In the early 1970s, Resource & Referral (R&R) agencies began their work as a way to help parents find child care in the community. Over time, R&Rs across the state have engaged families in a number of meaningful ways with some already providing Parent Cafés for years and others thinking about it but not yet started.

In early 2019, the California Department of Education (CDE) was awarded funding from the United States Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to accomplish a number of tasks including family engagement. CDE decided that the state’s R&R agencies had the bandwidth and capability to deliver training that incorporates the Strengthening Families Five Protective Factors and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Learn the Signs. Act Early. into the Parent Café model.

CCRC then created a hub and spoke training delivery model with 11 hubs providing training to local R&Rs in a prescribed geographic region.
