Childcare Training in North Omaha

Community childcare centers are part of birth to 8 strategy

Most babies and toddlers with a working parent spend three-quarters of their waking hours in childcare. Coaching childcare providers to support early learning is a powerful way to help children, starting when they’re babies! 

A child's brain develops most rapidly in the first years of life. That's why it's so important for kids to interact and learn from parents, family and caring adults. 

Childcare Director Tanja Mitchell teaches positive behaviors so that children know how to get along with others. She now works with a Learning Community coach to model best practices for her staff. 

Watch this video from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University to learn how experiences build a child's brain connections and the ability to learn in school.
