Circle of Care

Since 2013, we have been involved in a county wide collaborative known as Circle of Care, an initiative to support families and children in the child welfare system. Early Educators receive training in trauma informed care. In 2017, the department faculty will be developing a Trauma Informed Certificate Program.  For more information contact
