Several classes are available in the Tuscaloosa area. Child Care Partner Tammy Ross said she’s excited that the program is expanding across the state, offering local families assistance.
“When you join us in a Kids & Kin group, you will be learning from experts on a variety of educational child care topics; for example: child development, positive discipline and guidance, health & safety, special needs, and much more,” Ross said.
Ross adds that Kids and Kin groups are fun, educational, and beneficial for today’s child care provider, and that the providers are connected with resources in their particular county. The Alabama Department of Human Resources funds the program.
