“High-quality early care and education requires secure and nurturing relationships with adults who know how to support children’s development and learning. Children who have these relationships with adults tend to be more self-confident, better at interacting with others, and more effective learners. Neither nurturing children nor teaching them is enough by itself for optimal learning. The two work in tandem.” (National Academy of Sciences, 2020)
These facts have been proven in studies over the years and continue to ring true. Quality early education is the foundation of children’s future success. At Pro Action Child Care Council, we consistently focus on providing professional development opportunities that focus on the whole child. We expose child care programs to the tools and education to meet the diverse needs of each child while preparing them to be on track for school.
