More than 25 years ago, 4C for Children opened a regional office in Northern Kentucky and began actively helping find quality child care options for the region’s children and families as well as supporting child care providers by offering coaching and continuing education opportunities.
4C for Children’s responsibility for the critical education of Northern Kentucky’s youngest minds for the majority of these years was supported by state funding. In recent years, the state chose to centralize these efforts, shifting the funding to the University of Kentucky (UK) to deliver early childhood education support services to the state’s families and child care providers. 4C for Children then became a subcontractor for this region through UK.
Over the past five years, UK has gradually discontinued the use of subcontractors like 4C for Children. This has ultimately resulted in a complete loss of state funding for our services.
