This is session one of the BAS Transformative TA Institute.
This virtual, six-session institute is specifically designed for those in technical assistance (TA) roles, including coaches, mentors, and consultants, who support family child care providers in improving their business and professional practices. The Transformative TA Institute is focused on how to use the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS) as a tool for providing technical assistance.
Session 1 | Critical Components of Technical Assistance for Family Child Care
Knowing where to begin and what steps to follow when helping family child care providers improve their business and professional practices can be challenging, yet we know family child care programs cannot be sustained without these practices in place. This session will provide an introduction to technical assistance roles, examine the unique features of family child care, explain the importance of individualizing TA to meet the needs of providers, demonstrate how TA can support program sustainability and provider longevity, identify the components of transformational TA, and explore the six steps in the coaching process.
