The essential role of child care has been elevated now more than ever as early childhood professionals have responded to the ongoing pandemic.
Child care programs are facing barriers and challenges that are jeopardizing their continued operation in our community, such as:
Navigating the new requirements and challenges during the pandemic
Increased expenses reconfiguring their space to meet new health and safety requirements
Financial losses due to mandates reducing group sizes, which means serving fewer children with the same level of staffing
Increased sanitation supplies
Can They Count on You?
4C for Children has been laser-focused on comprehensively supporting our providers. We want to ensure that our community preserves the child care seats that serve children from low-income families. To make this happen, we have launched the Child Care Restart Campaign to provide programs with the resources and support they need to keep their doors open in the coming months.
Your gift to this campaign will have an immediate and direct impact on local providers by providing:
Direct financial assistance grants to help offset losses and maintain operations
FREE training to all providers focusing on new state guidelines, sanitation protocols, childhood trauma and more
Coaches who continue to walk step-by-step with our providers to understand barriers and provide resources and guidance
The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./US Bank Foundation has generously provided a challenge grant for this campaign and will match all individual donations to this critical effort up to $100,000. So your contribution and impact is doubled!
