10 COMPONENTS #10: Comprehensive Support Services
Saturday, August 26 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$10.00
High quality childcare serves as a protective factor for young children and plays a pivotal role in children’s well-being. Childcare professionals’ partner with families in careful observation of each child’s development and recognize signs of stress and adversity. Specific protocols are established for routine developmental screenings and ongoing comprehensive assessment. Trauma-informed practices are in place to build in strategies and targeted supports for infants, toddlers, and families.
Teachers and program administrators work with consultants and community agencies to ensure families are linked to social services, health services, therapeutic interventions, and early childhood mental health consultation, as needed. Ongoing communication and multidisciplinary support teams ensure continuity of services across settings, enrich child development, and promote positive outcomes that support and strengthen families.
