The rich array of experience and knowledge found within the family childcare community creates the perfect building blocks for mentoring.
Building on this diversity, the concept for TOPSTAR is a fairly simple one … send highly motivated peer mentors into the home childcare setting to assist caregivers in identifying up to three goals. Offer one-on-one support in reaching these goals. In doing so, peer relationships are developed that offer long term support for both the mentor and protege.
