Early Head Start Child Care Partnership Opportunity
Child-Parent Centers, Inc. (CPC) is the grantee for Early Head Start and Head Start services in southeastern Arizona. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has provided an opportunity via a competitive grant process to facilitate partnerships with Early Head Start programs and child care centers, family child care providers, or group homes to expand the access of high-quality, comprehensive services for low-income infants and toddlers and their families.
This funding initiative is for child care providers who serve infants and toddlers and their families who are Early Head Start age and income eligible as well as receive DES child care subsidy and/or are on the DES Priority Group 1 Wait List. Through this partnership grant CPC would provide increased financial and professional support to child care providers as they deliver early childhood services for our target population. As such, this partnership opportunity would be designed to align with Early Head Start standards which in some areas are higher than Arizona licensing and/or certification requirements.
Should We Partner?
CPC is applying for this grant and wants to identify potential child care centers, family child care providers, and group home partners. If you are interested, please take a few moments and answer three questions:
- Do you provide early childhood services for infants and toddlers birth to 3 years old?
- Do you provide services for families who receive DES child care subsidy and/or are on the DES Priority Group 1 Wait List?
- Would you like to learn more about a special opportunity to partner with an Early Head Start program to increase the quality of your services and improve your revenue stream?
If you answered “Yes” to these questions and want to find out more about this opportunity, please use the Partnership Request form below to provide your contact information. We will then contact you about the Early Head Start Child Care Partnership grant CPC is preparing. Responses are due no later than July 15, 2014.
