PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - Santa Maria's Family Child Care Program held a circus-themed event for providers and children on March 21 at the Price Hill Recreation Center. Over 60 individuals enjoyed watching a juggler from Cincinnati Circus, eating pizza and cotton candy and having their faces painted.
Santa Maria's Family Child Care Program collaborates with 4C For Children to provide on-going training to currently certified family child care providers. Monthly trainings are offered to Family Child Care providers. Training topics include: Working With Special Needs, Every Child Has Potential, Communication Is Critical and Developing Positive Self-Esteem In Children.
In addition, twenty providers are offered more intensive services. This "core" group of providers receives home visits from the Santa Maria program coordinator who gives encouragement and guidance on implementing information gained from trainings into their home child care business as well as other child development and professional development information and support.
