Evaluation of professional development for child care providers in California: The role of the California Resource and Referral Agencies and the California Child Care Initiative Project

This report describes the professional development delivered to child care providers by the California Resource and Referral Agencies (R&Rs). Data were collected from all 69 of California's R&Rs about the professional development they delivered to child care providers and the sources of funding used to deliver it. In addition, data were collected from the R&Rs about how funding was used to expand child care capacity and the quality of care, and foster relationships between the R&Rs and other entities focused on improving child care. In addition, data were collected about the challenges that R&Rs confronted in their efforts to deliver professional development to child care providers. Finally, case studies were conducted at 14 family child care homes (FCCHs) in California in order to assess the quality of child care in those homes. (author abstract)
