2021 Early Years Conference has ended
The 18th Annual Early Years Conference focus is on understanding the approach to a Multi Tiered System of Support. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is a framework that promotes equity and access by engaging “ALL” through a tiered approach that uses differentiation of services and supports. “All means ALL”.

Darryl Cregar

Quality Support Specialist
My name is Darryl Cregar. I am proud to work for the YMCA in their Childcare Resource Service as part of the Foster Care Bridge program. In this program, I am a trainer, facilitator and coach on trauma informed care to early childcare providers who have foster children in their programs.  I attended SDSU where I have received a Bachelor’s in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Child Development, and a certificate in Early Childhood Socio-Emotional Behavior Regulation Intervention Specialist. Most of my work with children has been working with the homeless children in child development centers. I have worked with babies all the way up to teenagers within that population. I also volunteer for a program called T.A.P.S. which stands for Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. In this program I looked after children, toddlers, and infants who have experienced the unfortunate trauma of losing a loved one fighting for our country and or battle with PTSD. While working with the homeless population and children from T.A.P.S., I became intrigued with the how trauma affects the lives of children and families. This relationship with trauma in my field of study has lead me to my dream job currently. It has always been my passion to teach others, help children and be resource to early educators.
