BRITE Child Care – Participant spotlight

Building Relationships in Infant Toddler Early Education

As part of Project BRITE, our Infant Toddler Mental Health Consultant Dalila has worked with Family/Group Family providers in Queens and Nassau Counties.

Staff at Learn and Grow Child Care in Levittown participated in this pilot program focused on developing a model that will help support child care providers in order to improve the social-emotional environment in their child cares. Our experiences with child cares like theirs will inform a statewide model of support that is being developed.

Learn and Grow additionally invested time to learn how to incorporate development screening into their child care practice during an earlier Docs for Tots Child Care Screening Learning Collaborative.

We valued the time our consultant spent teaching our staff the skills needed to work on the social-emotional growth of our children.

Thanks to Josephine and Antoinette for working with Docs for Tots to help the kids in your care get on the right path to healthy lives!
