This service offers your clients a customized and enhanced child care resource and referral service. Experienced 4-C family support services specialists have access to an extensive up to date database of programs for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. It includes regulated programs (child care centers, family child care homes, school age programs) as well as other types of regulated child care like summer camps, and preschools within an eleven-county service delivery area.
The family support services specialist pre-screens a list of regulated providers based on specific needs identified by the parent. The specialist provides information regarding availability, rates and environment. Child care options are shared with the parent within a few working days of the initial parent contact. If a limited number of referrals are available, the specialist will contact the parent to discuss other options.
4-C does not recommend, nor endorse a particular individual or program. Your client receives expert guidance and resources throughout the entire process of selecting a child care program. With these tools, parents can make informed decisions for choosing the child care program that best meets their needs.
