Supporting the well-being of kids and families

As a leader in child care and early childhood development, our programs and services  enhance child care and the quality of family life by providing support and education to the early childhood community.

Our North Shore Child Care Resource and Referral Program (CCRR) provides assistance and training to child care providers, early childhood educators, and families to find quality, affordable child care. Workshops, newsletters, drop-in programs and other services allow kids, families, early childhood educators and providers to connect and learn.

Our Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) supports the healthy development of young children and families facing challenging life circumstances.

Let us know how we can assist you.
