I have great news for parents who are struggling to find and pay for high quality childcare. Connecticut has created its first home-based child care apprenticeship program, which will hopefully create better-paying jobs in the field. This program will be a guide for those looking for a career in home-based child care.
The apprenticeship is designed to support everyone including aspiring caregivers and children of different cultures, who speak different languages, including Spanish. This development is vital for our diverse community. The program will also improve the quality of early care and education with coursework in child development.
