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 will be joined by, Natalie Renew and Karen Tylek (Home Grown) who together with Erikson Institute have developed benchmarks and indicators to represent a picture of what a high-quality network strategy can look like. In this session we will hear more about the quality benchmarks, how they are based on evidence from research, and practice and how they support educator wellness. We will also hear from Ansley Harron (Family Support Lead, Smart Start of Transylvania County, NC) and Danielle Caldwell (Owner and Director, The Children’s Room).
