New York State Awards Four Contracts to Child Care Council

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 20, 2012 – Child Care Council Inc. has been awarded four contracts from New York state to provide services that enhance child care and early childhood education programs.

Under the five-year contracts, which are funded by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, Child Care Council will continue to serve as the Rochester Region Infant/Toddler Resource Center and to provide child care resource and referral services in Monroe, Livingston and Wayne counties.

  • The Infant/Toddler Resource Center provides services designed to enhance programs for the care and education of infants and toddlers. Services include ongoing education, technical assistance and support for early childhood educators, licensors, registrars, enrollers, child care centers, family and group family child care homes, and legally exempt child care providers. The Council will continue to provide an infant toddler specialist in every child care resource and referral agency within the nine counties of Chemung, Livingston, Ontario, Monroe, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates.
  • The three child care resource and referral service contracts enable Child Care Council to provide comprehensive services focused on the support of high-quality child care programs that promote safety, permanency and well-being for children, families and communities. Services include child care referrals and education for families seeking out-of-home care for young children, technical assistance, business start-up and continued education, health consultation, enrollment and support for legally exempt child care providers.

“Child Care Council is extremely pleased that New York state has selected us for these four grants,” said Child Care Council CEO Barbara-Ann Mattle. “The state’s continued faith in the Council is a testament to our efforts to improve local child care and early education programs, through the work of our excellent professional staff and through the outstanding providers and educators that we collaborate with in the Finger Lakes region.”
