A local CIBC Network consultant, with oversight by WestEd’s CIBC staff, conducts a series of on-site visits, working directly with the teacher/staff. CIBC services are also being piloted with family child care providers in some counties/regions.
Services range from initial observations, reflective practice discussions, and action planning to linkages to local resources.
