Children begin learning from their very first moments of life. Agenda for Children is here to support early childhood educators as they work to create high-quality environments and experiences that help young children learn, develop and grow.
We provide information on how to maintain licensing requirements, health and safety consultations, provider training opportunities, technical assistance to enhance the quality of your program, classroom arrangement ideas and strategies to create an inclusive child care program.
Agenda for Children offers several programs to support teachers of young children, directors of child care centers and family child care providers.
Agenda for Children serves as the Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agency for 14 parishes in Southeast Louisiana. As the CCR&R, we help parents find child care, train early childhood educators and provide on-site technical assistance and coaching to Class A child care centers and family child care providers. Our Child Care Resource and Referral work is comprised of four main initiatives:
Child Care Resource and Referral helps connect parents to child care that meets their families' specific needs. Therefore, CCR&R can help you build your program's enrollment through its parent referrals. Visit our CCR&R page to learn more about how CCR&R can help your business.]
Our Child Care Technical Assistance Program (CCTAP) helps child care centers and family child care providers improve the quality of their programs by providing on-site coaching and technical assistance. Visit our CCTAP page for more information and to request a visit.
The Striving Readers program, a partnership with First Line Schools, is working with early childhood educators and parents at five child care centers and targeted pre-K classrooms to create literacy-rich environments in centers and in homes.
