CCRC offers a variety of one-on-one coaching programs to help you increase the quality of your child care.
Health and Safety Coaching
CCRC’s Health and Safety Coach supports child care providers in meeting the health and safety standards required by Community Care Licensing (CCL). Some of the most common findings are missing or outdated licensing forms, expired employee certifications, and potential safety hazards in the environment. The Health & Safety Coach acts as a second set of eyes to help providers comply with Title 22 requirements.
Coaching sessions are held in-person or virtually based on providers’ comfort level. During a coaching session, you will receive:
- One-on-one mentoring and program planning to support your site to meet the health and safety standards required by Community Care Licensing (CCL)
- Health and safety screenings to identify areas of improvement
- Guidance creating attainable action plans
- Resources to implement Title 22 requirements and best practices based on national standards
- Updates from CCL, Centers for Disease Control, and the Department of Public Health
- Customized professional growth and education opportunities for your staff
Health & Safety Coaching is open to Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County providers. To schedule a session, please contact:
Family Child Care Home Education Network
A Family Child Care Home Education Network (FCCHEN) is made up of a group of licensed family child care providers that offer subsidized child care for eligible families. CCRC’s FCCHEN program is funded by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Child Care and Development Division and is currently only funded for the Antelope and San Fernando Valleys.
As part of the FCCHEN program, providers make an extra commitment to increase their professional development and the quality of their care. With the support of an Early Childhood Coach, providers receive:
- Unique professional growth and education opportunities in the form of group meetings and trainings
- Free resources and materials to support children’s development
- One-on-one mentoring and program planning, including once-a-month visits, to ensure high-quality services
Child care professionals who choose to participate in the FCCHEN program will be coached and assisted in maintaining and achieving an overall required rating of “5” on each subscale of the Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale Assessment (FCCERS-R).
