Re-imagine Early Care and Education
Children’s Services Council is re-imagining the resources we offer programs and families who participate in formal child care to create better experiences and services for children and families in our community.
Currently, CSC offers scholarships to families to access care, as well as professional development scholarships for teachers to earn their degrees. CSC also provides technical assistance and other supports to some child care programs to increase the quality of care. Since some of these supports are ending in fall 2024, we are engaging with child care providers, families and the community to help us make decisions about services and supports that can best prepare all children for kindergarten.
Share Your Story
(Opportunity available May through September 2023; Share your story and enter a raffle for a $50 Amazon Gift Card!)
CSC invites you to share a memorable child care experience. Your story, and your response to questions about your story, will help us create better experiences and services for children and families in our community.
To gather your stories, CSC is using SenseMaker, an online data collection tool that allows people to share and make meaning of their own lived experiences.
Resident Advisory Committee: CSC will form a Resident Advisory Committee of families, child care programs, teachers, and staff who will analyze the information gathered during this re-imagining process and recommend new services. Before making changes, CSC will share the group’s recommendations with our community.
