Mervyn's Family-to-Family Initiative in Oregon.
Campbell, Lori; And Others
Family-to-Family, a collaboration between community colleges, public agencies, and businesses that is funded by Mervyn's department stores, is a two-year effort to enhance the quality of family child care in Oregon. Its goals are to train at least 450 family child care providers, help at least 60 providers achieve national accreditation, and educate consumers to recognize and demand high quality child care. By direct and indirect contact, the program presents caregivers with the advantages of accreditation, familiarizes them with changes in day care law in Oregon, and provides them with the means to become more educated or accredited in their field. The program involves three 15-hour training levels: (1) Family Child Care: A Firm Foundation; (2) Professional Track; and (3) Program Track. There is also a two-part workshop leading to accreditation. (SAK)
