iCarol Attending Child Care Aware of America Leadership Institute
iCarol is proud to sponsor the upcoming Child Care Aware of America Leadership Institute, and will be on-site during the gathering in Chicago, Illinois from October 18-20, 2023.
The Leadership Institute will focus on supporting caregivers in a more holistic way by building a culture of connection, authenticity and empathy. Child Care Aware of America believes that by prioritizing the mental health and well-being of teachers and providers, we can create a more supportive and healthy learning and care environment for all. And we at iCarol couldn’t agree more!
The participants at this sold out institute will:
- Gain a holistic understanding of well-being that includes happiness and a sense of purpose as well as having adequate economic resources and respect.
- Expand the possibilities of their unique role as a leader and partner to advance well-being and connections for early childhood educators.
- Engage with peers, experts and thought leaders as you design strategies to support the well-being of early childhood educators in their community.
- And much more!
Why are we at iCarol eager to support this cause and be present in this space with those in the Child Care industry? In recent years iCarol has welcomed several new customers who are Child Care Resource and Referral agencies. These agencies curate a comprehensive database of child care providers in their state, province, or region. This includes all sorts of information that parents and caregivers need when researching their options and making decisions — hours of operation, current openings, languages spoken, pre-school or educational programs offered, voucher acceptance, locations, and much more.
Child Care Resource and Referral agencies using iCarol have found that iCarol’s resource database offers the ultimate flexibility for their needs. Further, iCarol helps them document and track their interactions with parents, caregivers, and others who are inquiring about available care in their community. iCarol is also helping them send child care referrals by Email and SMS/Text, allowing them to accept online inquiries using Public Web Forms, and keep their listings updated while using less staff resources to do so with Automated Resource Verification.
