Educator Provider Support

The collaborative works with educators, directors and administrators working in center-based programs, Head Start programs, out-of school time (OST) programs and public school programs, as well as family child care providers. Priority is given to educators and programs serving children who receive EEC subsidies (vouchers or contracts).



The Region 6 Educator and Provider Support Collaborative is a partnership between ABCD and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). We work collectively to achieve positive outcomes for all children ages 0-14 (up to age 16 for children with special needs) through educator/provider professional development and program improvement.
