Project REACH is a free and voluntary program available in select rural Missouri counties to support those who care for young children.
We are a research-based program designed to enhance the quality of early child care and education. Through ongoing on-site visits, we provide training, support and assistance to those who care for and teach young children.
Project REACH is a part of the Center for Family Policy and Research at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
If you provide child care for children in counties served by Project REACH, contact us to receive information, for Attendance and Payment Accuracy for Child Care Providers Training or to receive updates for services in your area.
