Provider Development

The Provider Development team assists childcare programs through mentorship and trainings meant to strengthen their businesses.  Our focus is on increasing childcare availability and sustainability for the current and future needs of Northwest Florida families. 

Existing owners and directors are given the opportunity to participate in group trainings, virtual trainings, and one-on-one mentoring. The various sessions will provide assets needed to maximize their current location or expand. Teachers are supported through trainings and mentorships, also.  ELCNWF gives them the tools to succeed in their classrooms, whether they are new to teaching or wanting to further their career. 

There is a need for new child care programs, and ELCNWF is here to support new owners of Family Child Care Homes or Child Care Centers.  It is important to start out with a strong foundation to ensure sustainability and longevity, our business resources are here to give them that foundation.

Training Calendar:

Research shows that increased quality care requires trained teachers with a higher level of education. As teachers begin their career, we provide trainings to help them succeed in their classrooms.  We also offer trainings for teachers that are moving forward on their career path. The Coalition wants to support their efforts by providing professional development opportunities.
