Improving quality in licensed family childcare homes

 strengthening the skills and enriching the environments in which our children develop and learn together

Smart Start of Forsyth County supports our community’s efforts to improve the quality of licensed homes through Work Family Resource Center’s Continuum of Professional Development program.

Family child care professionals enter the Continuum at stage one and progress through the four stages of the program based on their educational achievement, star rating and professional development. Specialists provide technical assistance, training, and support to help the providers improve the quality of their child care environments. Additionally, the Continuum provides financial incentives for meeting educational and star rating requirements.

Services are also available in English and Spanish.
