Program Spotlight: Professional Development
CFC provides many support services to the child care providers and early educators in our region. We believe that promoting and ensuring quality child care and education is a team commitment. CFC staff works closely with child care providers and parents for the benefit of all young children.
CFC's Resource & Referral Department offers services to providers at all skill and experience levels, to best meet their needs. We focus on supporting quality for the children in care, their relationships with adults and peers, the curriculum, and the early education environment. The majority of programs and services are offered at no direct cost to the provider including: assistance with business start-up, mentoring, one-on-one coaching, and training programs on everything from healthy growth and development to the importance of art, music and both structured and unstructured play.
Our weekly training schedule offers vital information about children's development and early learning, as well as tools for professional growth and strengthening your child care business. Training is offered at our Santa Monica office and at El Camino College in Torrance.
