Consultation Project

Early Learning Institute 80The Consultation Project provides FREE, on-site consultation services to child care providers and preschool teachers serving children birth through age five who have not yet begun kindergarten.  The consultants include bilingual/bicultural professionals.  The consultants help the provider work with behavioral, temperamental, developmental or mental health issues and recommend interventions.  The consultant can assist both family and provider to connect to additional resources and services in the community.  They support child care providers and teachers in strengthening the effectiveness of their team and building positive relationships with parents.

The Consultation Project provides consultation, not comprehensive services. When a child or family has intensive needs, the Project will help connect them with additional resources in the community such as speech and language, parenting classes, counseling, etc.
