The SC-CCRRN offers free technical assistance services as an intentional process that uses various strategies over time to improve the quality of a child care program or individual caregiver's practices through visits to the program — in other words, transferring knowledge into practice.
The SC-CCRRN uses the technical assistance strategy of “Coaching,” which is a relationship-based process led by a “Quality Coach” to build your program’s capacity and, as the overall goal, to build program quality.
Early Childhood Programs can request technical assistance from a “Quality Coach” by calling our office at 1-888-335-1002, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or submitting a Technical Assistance Referral Form.
