United 4 Children has been working to educate and support professionals in the St. Louis area for over 40 years. You are invited to become an affiliate.
United 4 Children offers two types of Affiliation with our organization:
} Comprehensive Affiliation
} Professional Affiliation
Comprehensive Affiliation is open to child care programs who are seeking professional development support via onsite services (Goal setting, administrative planning, consultation, workshops, classroom observations, Environment Rating Scales, mock accreditation walk through, feedback sessions, coaching, online social networking coaching, family education sessions, CDA staff coaching, and technical assistance). Service delivery is chosen by the program as part of the goals they set for the year, individualized based on program needs and supported by quality consultants. Services for the current affiliation year runs September 2012 – December 2013. Next year affiliation year will begin a calendar year cycle January 1 through December 31.
Each program receives ten units of service. Onsite individual consultation (Goal setting, administrative planning, consultation, classroom observations, Environment Rating Scales, mock accreditation) translates to one unit per one hour onsite. The exception to this rule is onsite program workshop delivery: since workshops take extra time to research, prepare materials, deliver, and process, 2.5 units are deducted for each one workshop hour.
Programs may choose: Two 2-hour workshops, two environment rating scales, or a combination of services.
The actual cost to provide onsite services to a Comprehensive Affiliate program is $3,000.00. This cost is underwritten through the generous support of the United Way and United 4 Children so that programs pay a fraction of the actual cost and receive quality professional support from highly qualified consultants. As a result, there are a limited number of spaces available in this program so it is recommended that you secure your affiliation in August.
