Professional development

Community Resources for Children is here to support you.

Through the Academy for Child Care Educators of Napa County, CRC connects prospective child care providers, licensed child care providers and caregivers to introductory licensing orientations and offers peer support groups, virtual and in-person training programs, and much more!

The Child Care Initiative Project (CCIP) is a training series that has two primary areas of focus:

  1. Capacity building to increase the quantity of licensed family child care homes
  2. Improving the quality of care provided to young children in family care homes. This intensive training series is being offered to participants going through the process to become licensed family child care providers, caregivers, and existing child care providers.

Caregiver Café is a peer support program for all types of caregivers including licensed child care providers, parents and family members, friends and neighbors taking care of children other than their own.

ALL providers, caregivers and educators are welcome, we look forward to seeing you!

When you participate in CCIP webinars and Caregiver Cafés you have the opportunity to earn badges in 3 key areas that enhance your Child Care Program. You only need to participate in one workshop to earn a badge in that category. Badges will be displayed on your professional development certificate, which you will receive at our Child Care Educator recognition event held in May.
