The Sheltering Arms Early Head Start Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) is one of two hubs in an innovative initiative, led by the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), to serve infants and toddlers. Since 2015, DECAL has partnered with Sheltering Arms and Quality Care for Children to expand access to high-quality early education and services across metro Atlanta to nearly 200 infants, toddlers and their families.

The DECAL EHS-CCP partners are located in communities with the greatest need for Early Head Start services and demonstrate commitment to quality by participating in Quality Rated, Georgia’s quality rating and improvement system.

As hub specialists, Sheltering Arms staff provide technical assistance, coaching and professional development for the teachers and program administration.
