Description:

ECPAC provides comprehensive quality improvement support to licensed child care programs (Centers and Family Child Care Homes) as well as to informal child care providers (Families, Friends, and Neighbors). Support includes professional development training, on-site coaching or implementation support, and funding for learning materials.
Additionally, ECPAC works closely with the local mental health center to connect licensed programs to early childhood mental health consultants both for preventative support to create socially-emotionally rich environments, as well as for intervention level support for children who are experiencing challenging behaviors despite having a socially emotionally rich environment.
