National Child Care Resource Directory
The Soho Center's National Child Care Resource Directory is now in its 5th Edition. It makes a very desirable and cost-effective hand-out that your clients and providers will appreciate and use to enhance their pograms.
The Directory is an attractive 16-page, over-size (9"x12") booklet filled with child care resources and great articles about using them. It's an easy-to-use reference ideal for family child care providers, child care center staff, trainers, CACFP Sponsors, R&Rs, Head Start programs, and child care associations.
The Directory includes hundreds of sources for free, low-cost, and competitively-priced materials, brochures, books, toys, safety products, children's equipment and supplies, posters, videos, software, newsletters, and hot-lines.
The Directory lists hundreds of agencies and organizations (including addresses, 800-numbers, and websites). It's organized to help you find just what you need fast. And it's just as valuable for groups that work with child care providers and the child care field, helping identify training materials and other quality resources.
The National Child Care Resource Directory includes sections on -
Nutrition and Health
Safety and Injury Prevention
Kids' Books and Literacy
Toys, Art Supplies, and Children's Furniture
Non-Violent, Non-Sexist Children's Media
Child Care Insurance
And much more . . .
As a 38 year-old non-profit committed to helping large numbers of children, the Soho Center's goal is simple - we want everything we do to promote quality child care and education in every way we can. This Directory helps make child care programs better; that's why we created it. And we're doing all we can to keep it current, expand it, and get it to as many child care sites and providers as possible.
One example - We have sent free copies of an earlier Edition of our National Child Care Resource Directory to every Food Program Sponsor in America - about 1,200 of them. That mailing included a special offer to join our next printing and purchase enough copies of the Directory for each of their providers - a lot of them did and we got orders from all over America. It was a great success - which is why we're now on our 5th Edition!
If you want to make a group order, call us at 540-923-5012 or e-mail us at ResourceDirectory@child2000.orgWe encourage any and every group working with providers to get copies of our National Child Care Resource Directory. And we encourage every provider to purchase a copy for their own use.
