Supporting childcare programs and educators

United 4 Children wants to ensure that each childcare program and educator has free access to more than only the minimum supports needed to operate per state guidelines. With our services, childcare providers can choose to invest in elevated supports that grow their program to meet the individual needs of the families and children they serve. Through selected investment opportunities, we envision that childcare programs and educators will be build skills and quality which will reduce inequities our children and youth face. U4C will partner with childcare programs and educators to reinvest in themselves and be empowered to live out their passion for children!

The available service opportunities are called: Program Membership and Educator Membership. You can learn more about each below!
