CCAP Rate Increase effective Dec. 1, 2018

Posted: December 3rd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Child Care Providers, News | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

4-C and other child care advocates in Kentucky have worked tirelessly towards a rate increase for child care providers and parents across the state.

We are happy to say that effective December 1, 2018, reimbursement rates for providers have increased to 40% of the 2017 Market Rate Survey.

For parents, the income guidelines have increased allowing them to remain on the financial assistance program with income of 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, up from the previous 165%.  Furthermore, effective June 28, 2019 the program will allow post-secondary education or training to fulfill the work requirement. While there is still work to be done, we are pleased with the changes and the opportunities that they offer for our families in Kentucky.

“Rethinking the Classroom Landscape”

with Keynote Speaker Sandra Duncan

Registration is now open for the 3rd Annual Heart Centered Teaching Institute! Connect with other early childhood professionals in your community for a day of discussion, learning, and reflection. Keynote speaker Sandra Duncan will lead us through a discussion on the power of the environment. As she states in her book, Rethinking the Classroom Landscape, “Space speaks. Even though we cannot hear the classroom’s walls or floors talking, the equipment is conversing, or the learning materials are chattering, they are, indeed, speaking to us. They are telling us how to behave, act, react, engage, and even think. The space is whispering ‘run’ or ‘pause and linger for a while.'” At the Heart Centered Teaching Institute, we will explore how the environment is influencing our behaviors and the messages it sends to our children. How can we redesign and strengthen our classroom environment to reflect our community? Join us to examine your classroom landscape and discover how you can create meaningful places from ordinary spaces for children.
