Child Care Resource Consultant Services
What is Child Care Resource Consultant Services?

Child Care Resource Consultant Services support the full inclusion of children aged 0-12 who face a variety of challenges in licensed child care programs. Inclusive child care provides all children with early lessons in cooperation, respecting differences, and consideration of others.

The Benefits

Families will have support to access resources and information related to child care programs, community services, disability related services and transition to school. Child care programs will develop skills related to the full inclusion of all children. Professional development and a resource library are offered to community partners.

Inspiring Possibilities

All children have the right to play and grow in a child care program of their family’s choice. Children in licensed child care will have supports designed to respond to their unique needs. The opportunity for a quality inclusive early learning experience exists in our community. Through play, children learn and develop.
