Maintain the high percentage of at-risk children served who are able to remain in their childcare setting
The program has had consistently high levels of success at helping maintain children in the care setting. Maintaining a child in their childcare setting is a product of not only helping the child manage their behaviors, but also working with staff in addressing the behavior with minimal disruption. The prevalence of maintaining the child in the setting (e.g., 98% in FY 2018) was higher than the percentage of children demonstrating improved social and emotional skills (e.g., 67% in FY 2018) because of the success in helping childcare staff manage social and emotional behavior problems even when they continue to occur.
- Target outreach to family childcare providers.
- Provide group trainings to family providers.
- Implement formal quality assurance evaluation process to identify weaknesses in process and make corrective changes.
