Operating High Quality Child Care Programs

Providing high quality care involves much more than the classroom materials and resources.  Attracting, hiring and retaining high quality professional staff is the single largest expense for child care programs.  Programs struggle to keep rates affordable for families and yet offer staff competitive compensation, benefits, and continued education and training.  Many programs seek additional support and financial resources to offset some of the costs to provide high quality programming for children and families and yet be able to retain qualified staff.
