Child Care Solutions

Child Care Solutions (CCS) provides early childhood mental health consultation for community preschools. Our professional consultants work collaboratively with early care and education staff – and families – to improve their ability to prevent, identify, and respond to mental health issues among children in their care. In contrast to direct therapeutic services, these services serve to improve the ability of preschool staff to apply effective interventions to all students – not just the ones they originally sought help for. The services reduce expulsion, and help provide children and families in need with guidance and support at a time when it can be most important to intervene.

Upon referral through a licensed child care provider and with parental permission, Child Care Solutions consultants can offer services that include an initial observation and assessment of a child in the child care setting, on-site consultation with staff, brief counseling for the family, support for supervisors and program directors, in-service training for staff members as requested, and referrals to community resources.
