Childcare Resources is a Birmingham, Alabama based non-profit organization whose mission is to make quality care and education of children happen by providing information, education, and assistance to families, providers of child care, and the community.
Central Alabama’s only child care resource and referral agency, Childcare Resources was created as the outgrowth of a child care task force convened by United Way of Central Alabama in 1984 to address critical child care needs identified in Jefferson, Shelby and Walker Counties, with Blount County added to the service area in 1988.
Services provided by Childcare Resources include financial assistance for low-to-moderate income working families, quality training and technical assistance for child care providers (including a free Early Learning Resource Library, mobile Resource Library Van, and Early Learning Demonstration Classroom), research-based parent education resources, and assistance to hundreds of families in our community seeking quality child care options for their young children.
We believe children are one of our greatest natural resources, and it is imperative that they receive quality care from trained and supported staff to help them reach their full potential.
To make quality care and education of children happen by providing information, education, and assistance to families, providers of child care, and the community.
Quality child care will be available and affordable to all families who need it.
