At the Child Care Coordinating Council of the North Country, we know that all children deserve the very best early childhood education. That’s why we educate and support the development of a qualified workforce of early childhood providers through recruitment, training opportunities, technical assistance, credentialing, and coaching. CCCCNC recognizes that child care providers’ confidence and competence is directly related to quality supports based in developmentally appropriate practices and field research.
Education Incentive Program (EIP) funding, or other grants or scholarships may be available to you! Please contact Rose Blanchard at (518) 561-4999 or and she will be happy to discuss your options.
We offer training to all licensed and registered child care providers/programs, as well as parents and caregivers, across the region. All trainings we offer satisfy the training topics of the NYS Office of Children and Family Services (NYS OCFS), which child care professionals are required to meet by New York State regulation.
We often collaborate with other agencies in the area to offer a wide variety of training in Plattsburgh, Malone, and Saranac Lake. Participants receive a certificate at the conclusion of each training, which will list the NYS OCFS training topics covered, the CDA content areas, and the Core Body of Knowledge areas.
See our current calendar for information including dates on all upcoming trainings!
The Child Care Council (CCCCNC) is your resource for developing and maintaining the high quality child care program that you wish to have. We offer on-site consultation and technical assistance on a one-on-one basis to licensed and registered child care providers in Clinton and Franklin Counties. We are happy to assist your caregiver or program in the use of an environmental rating scale to develop a quality improvement plan, and to help resolve program issues.
Some examples of areas for potential technical assistance may include:
In Clinton County: Rose Blanchard
In Franklin County: Patsy Ellison
