Child Care Technical Assistance Program

Child Care Technical Assistance Program (CCTAP) provides on-site technical assistance (TA) to Class A child care centers and DCFS-registered family child care providers. We customize our time in your program to fit your current needs. CCTAP coaches can assist programs in areas such as classroom arrangement, class sizes and ratios, best practices, licensing information, Quality Start information, accreditation, and Environmental Rating Scales (ERS) assessments. The technical assistance provided is based on a program’s specific needs. 

During the TA visit, our TA coaches may use classroom observations, modeling, coaching, and collaboration with the director to develop an improvement plan to assist the program in improving their quality. Each program improvement plan connects training, best practices and classroom experiences. 

All Class A programs and Family Child Care Homes registered with the Child Care Assistance Program are eligible to receive this service free of charge.
