Kid Connects / Early Childhood Services

Kid Connects provides integrated health and mental health consultation to licensed child care centers, family child care homes and in Head Start/Early Head Start settings.
  • Uses a relationship-based mental health consultation model in which early childhood consultants are based on-site at child care settings and in family child care homes.
  • Informed by the latest research on attachment and early relationships, has a strong foundation in child development, and delivers effective, clinically sound, developmentally appropriate practices in the classroom setting and to families.
  • Offers a wide variety of services to all children on a prevention basis and together with teachers/providers and parents identifies children who need additional support. The flexibility of the model allows for classroom consultations, home visiting, parent support, and teacher training.
  • The Warm Line can be accessed by child care providers, parents and other community members for brief mental health consultation. These brief consultations usually consist of observations in the child care setting, consultation with parents and teachers and recommendations based on the immediate need of the child and family.
  • The goals are to improve health, developmental and mental health outcomes for children in child care settings, to reduce expulsions from child care settings and to improve the capacity of caregivers to respond to the social and emotional needs of very young children.
