Parent Educator/Childcare Visitor Program

The Parent Educator/Childcare Visitor Program is a partnership program of the United Way of Otter Tail County and the Fergus Falls ECFE/School Readiness Programs (funded by a grant from the United Way of Otter Tail County).

Through monthly visits, the childcare visitor program brings information, education and support to licensed childcare providers and the children in their care.

This Program is available to all childcare providers, childcare centers and the children in their care. Information is shared about development, community resources and enhancing early literacy. The Child Care Visitor program also offers:

  • Visits provided during the school year offering a typical preschool class to childcare homes and centers.
  • Age appropriate play, developmental toys and learning experiences for children.
  • Information on child development and community resources.
  • Parents receive monthly newsletters that include information on monthly activities, early literacy, creative art activities and parent pages.
