After three years of work by a group of determined visionaries, Community Coordinated Child Care, Inc. (4-C) was incorporated in 1971 as a non-profit child care resource and referral agency. Original goals established for the agency were to collect and analyze child care data; to develop programs, training and related services to improve the quality of child care; and to bring agencies together to promote improvement in services to children.
Today 4-C is part of a network of accredited, non-profit Wisconsin Child Care Resource & Referral agencies providing advocacy and support services for child care in an 11 county region. 4-C programs provide a broad range of services to families, early childhood professionals, and the community through three general program categories including Family Support Services, Health and Safety Services and Training and Quality Improvement Services. Collectively these programs strive to carry out the 4-C mission to ensure that every child has access to high quality early care and education through integrated support and expertise.
