Early Head Start - Child Care Partnership


Early Head Start provides early, continuous, intensive, and comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income infants and toddlers and their families. 

Child Care Resource & Referral partners with multiple early child care providers in Kankakee County to provide comprehensive Early Head Start services to families who are not only seeking to obtain quality early childhood services for their children in facilities that will provide their children with optimum care, but also to address the needs of families and provide them with resources that will positively impact the quality of their life as a result of participating in the Early Head Start- Child Care Partnership program.
