Child Care Provider Support Services
“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can learn to read, write, or count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child”
Quality early care and education programs support a child's optimal development and readiness for success in school. Valley Oak knows the importance of quality child care! Our child care support services assist providers who are starting a child care program or need help running a program.
