RCFP has been a blessing to the CoStars program.  Our coach provides thoughtful reflection on children’s behaviors, examining what they are really telling us and supporting teachers in adjusting our approaches to best meet the needs of the children we serve.  Support from our coach extends well beyond our demonstration classroom and trickles over into all of our conversations and practices across the program.
