This project was part of a long-term effort to improve quality in family child care through building agency staff capacity to support providers in these settings. This project sought to deliver training to a broad audience of family child care agency specialists through a train-the-trainer approach combined with online materials and support.


A goal of this project was to develop cost-effective means to promote these important training approaches, principles, and content for the family child care field which has historically suffered from a lack of resources and recognition.


Earlier phases of this project examined the ways that in-person training shapes the practices and knowledge of agency specialists that work with family child care providers.
