Child Care Center Inclusive Training Project
In collaboration with the Department of Children and Family Services and the Arc – Baton Rouge, the Council supported training and technical assistance to child care staff, trainers, technical assistance providers and others to support the inclusion of children with developmental disabilities. Additionally, a stakeholder group was assembled to review and make recommendations to the special needs rate and Quality Start Child Care Rating System. One goal of this project was to have a searchable web-based listing of child care centers meeting the inclusion standards.
