Onsite Technical Assistance

Delaware Opportunities Inc. Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) is committed to supporting and assisting child care providers in maintaining and improving the safety and quality of care they provide children.  One way the CCR&R does this is by offering child care providers technical assistance that meets their needs.

The three types of  technical assistance offered are:

Basic Technical Assistance
The CCR&R offers one-on-one technical assistance (TA) to child care providers or programs that is customized to meet the needs of the provider/program and addresses a specific issue.  This may be done by phone, email, at the CCR&R office in Hamden or on site where the child care is located.

Intensive Technical Assistance (ITA)
Child care providers or programs may request technical assistance from the CCR&R to address specific, defined issues or problems that can be effectively resolved with a few on site TA visits. Click here to learn more. To apply for ITA please complete the ITA application.

Intensive Technical Assistance Project (ITAP)
Child Care providers or programs may request technical assistance to improve program quality. Such long term TA will include a program assessment followed by a quality improvement plan developed by the TA specialist and the child care provider/program.  The TA specialist will assist the child care provider in the implementation of the Quality Improvement Plan and in order to gauge progress, will do a follow-up assessment at an agreed upon time. 

If you are looking for a way to set your child care program apart then take part in our Intensive Technical Assistance Project (ITAP).  ITAP is an interactive program designed to help you set your child care program apart.  With the help of a daycare specialist you will learn how to assess your program, decide on areas you would like to enhance, develop a plan and put it into practice!
