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 CLASS, Teaching Strategies GOLD, Louisiana Early Learning and Development standards, 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.
Class A programs who are participating in a community network pilot and Family Child Care Homes registered with the Child Care Assistance Program are eligible to receive this service free of charge.
