Child Care is Everywhere: How Libraries Can Develop, Strengthen, and Support Child Care Part I: Introduction to Child Care & Bringing Literacy to Child Care (Association for Library Service to Children)

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.
