ICAA knows that being a childcare provider can be one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs, and we want to be there to support you along the way! If you are a licensed, certified childcare or are looking to start childcare check out ways we can support your childcare journey!

Staff Development

ICAA can offer licensed or certified child care professional development training in Protective Factors: Protective factors are conditions or attributes in individuals, families, and communities that promote the health and well-being of children and families. By using a protective factors approach, child welfare professionals and others can help parents find resources and support that emphasize their strengths while also identifying areas where they need assistance, thereby reducing the chances of child abuse and neglect.
This training can be utilized in person or virtually, during the times that work for you and your staff FREE OF CHARGE. This can also be taken to obtain Registry Credits.

Parent Education

Five for Families: While every family has challenges, they also have strengths that they can draw upon during difficult times. Understanding how to build upon your family’s strengths in five essential areas can help you feel more confident, less stressed and better connected to your children. This resource for parents can be done on-on-one or in a group setting with a certified parenting educator.
Parent Cafes: Parent led discussion facilitated by a certified parenting educator with pre-determined topics to creates a safe place where parents of all types can gather and share their stories, their experiences, their worries, their fears, their wisdom, and find community and strength together. We want parents to know they are not alone in their struggles and that all parents experience parenting stress and together we can support one another!
