Hi! I'm Sara Dentone and I'm a family child care provider in Plymouth. I've provided care in the Plymouth area for over 12 years. I started studying early childhood education years ago through a program called CARES that was similar to the new program, Amador Quality for Kids. I have 40 units of childhood education and many workshop learning hours in my knowledge base.
As a provider having the knowledge of early childhood development is important not only for providing quality care for kids, but also a valuable tool in helping parents and families to raise their children.
I appreciate the support of the Quality for Kids program and the resources it
provides for child care providers .
A few months ago, Sara agreed to allow local FCCERS (Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale) trainees observe and assess her family child care home. As a result of this partnership, these trainees were able to observe Sara's program and important aspects of maintaining a FCCERS-friendly program, and Sara earned a stipend through Amador Quality for Kids.

Please stay tuned as we begin planning either on-line or in-person workshops in the near future. Thank you for your patience as we all try to figure out how to best move forward!
