More than half of children under 5 years attend child care and high quality programs can have lasting positive effects, including improved cognitive and social abilities. Learn about several different library programs that develop and support high-quality child care, such as Growing Providers, BPL’s initiative to support community members in opening their own home-based child care centers, BPL’ss "Nanny and Me,” a certificate-bearing child/caregiver program in early literacy practices, NYPL’s targeted nanny family literacy workshops for caregivers to network and support each other while learning new skills, and the Free Library of Philadelphia’s “Literacy in Early Learning Spaces” program for family and licensed child care centers.

  1. Upon completion, participants will be able to identify the types of child care programs in their community with which they can develop partnerships.
  2. Upon completion, participants will be able to identify and analyze the needs of child care providers in their community and reflect on the best methods and programming to support the growth and development of child in their communities.
