TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

AACF provides technical assistance to help you enhance the quality of care you provide for children and families. Our specialists work at your site — with individual classrooms or your entire program — to help you meet short- or long-term goals, maintain higher quality, address your professional development needs, and support program start-up or corrective action requirements.

 

Technical assistance is guided by a collaboratively developed action plan to accomplish your goals. Support may be episodic or year-long, broadly or narrowly focused.

 

Types of Technical Assistance:

Infant Toddler Quality Enhancement Project

 

This project provides training and technical assistance specifically for directors and teachers working with infants and toddlers in licensed child care programs. One of AACF’s specialists uses the appropriate Environment Rating Scale to assess your classroom/family child care home. Specialists work with you to develop an action plan with goals based on the results of this pre-assessment. Support includes in-depth training on the appropriate rating scale, classroom arrangement, developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor activities, language development, and more.

Healthy Social Behaviors

 

As a child care director or teacher, you know that children's behaviors can be challenging. In fact, teachers report that children’s behavior is the single biggest challenge they face. While some behaviors are appropriate for children's developmental level, some behaviors can be challenging for classroom teachers to manage. AACF’s Healthy Social Behaviors in Child Care Centers project provides behavior-specific consultation, coaching, and training on preventing and addressing challenging behaviors and promoting children's social competencies. Behavior specialists work with you to enhance classroom management and implement Pyramid Model strategies to teach children pro-social skills.
