All families have their own special circumstances, including parent work or school schedules, the family budget, and what works best for their children. Our Resource and Referral service works in partnership with families to assist them in navigating the array of options and assessing the health, safety and quality indicators in programs that every parent wants in place for their child.
Specialized referral and support services are available for families whose children have special needs to locate inclusive child care…programs that are dedicated to giving the best early education to ALL children, including children with disabilities or special needs. U4C inclusion consultants work with all child care programs to improve the quality and availability of inclusive places for children, with a special focus on teaching strategies to build social-emotional competencies and reduce challenging behavior in the classroom.
