2018 QRIS National Meeting

286. Engaging Michigan’s License-Exempt Providers and the Families for whom They Provide Care

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
Location: Marina 2

Michigan is piloting a project called “Care Giving Conversations,” particularly focused on Michigan’s license-exempt providers (Family, Friend, and Neighbor Care). These cafés, designed for providers and the families for whom they provide care, teach about Strengthening Families Protective Factors and, ultimately, skills to work together for the benefit of the child. In this session, Michigan will share the experiences and techniques used in these cafés. 

Presenters: Desiree Hughes, Michigan Department of Education Office of Great Start; Holly Wingard, Early Childhood Investment Corporation
