Community Coaching Signature Presentation:
Coaching and Mentoring Family Child Care:
Understanding This Unique Journey in ECE
Presented by Patricia Dischler & Donna Fowler
This session will outline the stages of family child care as part of an Early Care and Education career. When coaches and mentors identify and support family child care professionals at the stage they are currently in, with strategies for moving to the next stage, they are better equipped to move quality forward. Participants will leave with strategies for building successful relationships and fresh approaches to the professional development and quality improvement opportunities they offer family child care professionals.

Patricia Dischler is a nationally recognized speaker and author who inspires audiences with her creative ideas and inspiring presentations. Her personal story of placing her son in a ground breaking open adoption in 1985 and the lessons learned apply to all adoptions. Her book Because I Loved You has been hailed as a “roadmap to open adoption” and endorsed by five national adoption agencies including the Adoption Institute.

As Patricia says, “You can never have too many people love a child.”
YOU Make a Difference
TOGETHER We Make a Difference
Does your association need to grow stronger? Bigger? Smarter? Motivate your membership and guide your Board of Directors to create a solid structure for decision making and goal setting, and most importantly: how to get things done! Members want to know that they are a part of an organization that accomplishes the mission so Patricia customizes this presentation to include your organization’s mission and reach your specific audience on how to get involved and get excited about the work you do!
This segment helps guide your board into real work, taking your strategic plan and building from it policies that will support the work, a work plan that will track accomplishments, and operating procedures to facilitate communications during role changes. Learn how to create a system that not only starts getting things done now, but helps your organization stay consistent in it over time and throughout position changes.
