Technical Assistance (TA) is the provision of targeted and customized supports by a professional(s) with subject matter and adult learning knowledge and skills to develop or strengthen processes, knowledge application, or implementation of services by recipients.
CCR&R Technical Assistance services help providers improve or enhance the quality of child care so that families have access to quality child care for their children. As a result, providers will be able to implement knowledge about quality in their individual care giving situations.
All tehnical assistance services provided by CCR&R are free. Programs will not be required to purchase any memberships, additional materials or supplies to receive services.

Ongoing Technical Assistance Coaching - structured, intentional on-site TA which supports the development of specific skills and practices. Longer term requiring three or more onsite episodes with duration dependent on successful progress toward meeting goals.
