The Council is the premier resource for:

Parents, who face the difficult challenge of leaving their children in child care. We provide free referrals to help parents make the best child care choice for their family, with invaluable information about quality, regulations, and the cost of care.

Providers and early childhood educators, who receive our unmatched training and education programs. Our training courses, community programs and important licensing information help child care providers and early educators offer the highest-quality care.

Businesses, who can offer free child care referrals to their employees, as a workforce benefit. The average American working parent misses between 5-9 days of work each year due to issues with child care − costing U.S. businesses $3 biIIion annually.

– Entrepreneurs, who want to start their own child care business. We have former child care business owners on staff who can help guide those interested in launching and running a business.

Coordinated services to support child care programs include a professional library, free notary public, and fingerprinting waivers. The Council also provides reduced-cost printing and business services and operates a retail store that sells scrap materials and over-run goods donated by area businesses, such as paper, foam and wood scraps, and discontinued items like fabric, carpeting, and wallpaper.

Child Care Council is a member of Child Care AwareThe Early Care and Learning Council, the New York Statewide Breastfeeding Coalition, and The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute.
