A resource for child care centers

To strengthen the quality of child care in metro Atlanta, Emory's WorkLife Resource Center sponsored a training session for area child care centers in the Emory Child Care Network on Nov. 10 at Zoo Atlanta.

“We have nearly 200 child care centers in our comprehensive city-wide network, and this training will be something that directors can take back to their schools and improve care within their individual centers,” says Audrey Adelson, dependent care program specialist with Emory WorkLife.

Over the past several months, Emory WorkLife has worked with the nonprofit Quality Care for Children to create new training programs that focus on helping center directors and teachers with management and organizational issues, as well as creative curriculum design and preparing children to begin school.

“Our two new training programs will help address some of the most troublesome areas in the child care industry, specifically attracting and retaining quality staff and preparing children to meet the Georgia Early Learning Standards,” says Adelson.

The new training material was approved from Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

The Emory Child Care Network is one of many programs that have been created by the Emory WorkLife Resource Center, a Human Resources program that assists employees with managing their work-life responsibilities.
