High-quality child care relies on strong programs, safe facilities, and educated professionals. The child care professional has an enormous involvement in a child’s well-being and development. Their knowledge and skills, or lack thereof, influence a child’s readiness to enter school prepared. Professionals need support and assistance to develop skills and improve their knowledge.
It’s difficult to navigate higher education when you’re working full-time. The Hoke County Partnership for Children and Families works closely with Sandhills Community College to help child care professionals advance their education.
