Training and Technical Assistance

Child care is an economic driver for all communities across the United States but many communities are actually classified as a child care desert, meaning the demand for care outpaces the number of slots available to families.

First Children’s Finance provides training and technical assistance to communities on a variety of issues. If you’re looking for strategies to create local solutions, First Children’s Finance is available to provide training and technical assistance to your project stakeholders.

We are experts in child care business model innovation. We can bring new thinking about facility use, licensing reform, local financial incentives, and community partnerships. We’re committed to helping communities identify strategies that increase the number of high quality child care slots available to families.
