Partnering with parents, early childhood professionals, employers and the whole community to help give children a strong start
A program providing comprehensive solutions for new and existing early childhood professionals offered at low or no cost. Child Care Choices works to ensure that children have developmentally appropriate learning environments and that early childhood educators have the resources and support they need to ensure each child’s success. We work with parents and educators when children display behavioral issues in preschool or child care and provide resources, events and workshops and activities to educate and engage families, early childhood educators and children.
