Specialists Networks

Quality care and education is supported through the statewide child care resource and referral agencies' network of Technical Assistance Specialists, coordinated by OCCRRA. Specialists assist programs on Step Up To Quality, developmentally appropriate practices, optimal learning environments, program and child assessments/screenings and curriculums. OCCRRA works in conjunction with the Specialist Networks to create Ohio Approved training to raise the level of professionalism in the field and increase the quality of care in ECE and Out-of-School Time programs.
