thread, Alaska’s Child Care Resource & Referral network is a statewide collaborative effort focusing on improving the quality, accessibility, and affordability of early care & learning in Alaska. thread helps thousands of Alaska families find quality care for their children each year. We provide them with individualized referrals based on their unique needs and help them through this stressful and emotional process. Many resources and educational tools are also available to help them make the best decision for their family.
Research shows that the level of quality care is directly related to the amount of education, training, and support provided to early care & learning professionals. That’s why thread offers training, financial supports, and technical assistance to teachers and their programs. We make sure they are ready and able to provide the best possible care and education to the children in our state.
thread also works collaboratively with communities across the state to assist with their unique needs and challenges. Advocating, educating, and collaborating with others to find solutions, raise awareness, and advance the quality of early care & learning in Alaska.
