“I have provided child care services for the past 11 years and to see the growth and development of the children I provide care for brings me great joy.” — Sheryl

Community Connections Preschool For All Program

This program links home-based child care providers (licensed or license-exempt) with center-based Preschool for All classroom programs for their 3- and 4-year-olds. Children are transported to a center for a morning or afternoon session four days per week. On the fifth day, teachers visit providers to discuss children, share activities, and deliver educational resources. Providers do not lose any funding from the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) as a result of participating in Community Connections.

Providers may contact the following centers to request inclusion in this program:
