2014 Child Care Council Annual Report

Message from the Executive Director, Linda Martini:

In 1971, the Child Care Council of Orange Co., Inc. was created to help working and student parents find child care by providing them with referrals to regulated child care programs.

Over the past 41 years, we have accomplished steady increases in services to parents and providers, Staff Members with professionalism, action and vision for high quality child care in Orange County. The Council has continued to be the primary hub for child care services in Orange County. The Board and Staff Members continue to build collaborations and resources with our community partners and together strengthen our resources for the families of this County. This success was evidenced by our Best Practice Certification from Early Care and Learning Council for demonstrating competence in the field of Child Care Resource and Referral in New York State; and, a national recognition from Child Care Aware for delivery of consumer education and referral designed to ensure that all families have access to information, options, indicators and related resources.

At present we are working on accreditation of our high quality services by the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies.

We are grateful for your support of our mission. Together we can strengthen as we move forward.

On the following pages we have listed our services for the past year and our goals for 2016.
