This home-based child care (HBCC) webinar, like all of BUILD’s others, is based on our core beliefs about HBCC as well as the facts that (1) HBCC meets a critical need for families, (2) there is a need to build a lasting HBCC infrastructure through systemic supports, and (3) networks can be used to create this lasting infrastructure.
In this session we will continue our exploration of the importance of home-based child care educator wellness in creating equitable early childhood systems. We are excited to welcome back Shayla Collins (UW Center for Child & Family Well-Being) who will model wellness strategies for us that HBCC educators can use as well. Then, we will hear from ParentChild+ whose mission is to ensure that all children regardless of their race, socio-economic status, or zip code have equal possibilities from the start. ParentChild+ offers innovative supports for home-based child care educators which support educators professional capacity and wellness. Vidya Ragoo (National Director, Family Child Care Initiative), Fela De Los Santos (Early Learning Specialist) and Jalexa Molina (HBCC educator) will share with us how these supports are delivered and the impact they have.
