CCR&R of NW Iowa - Region 1

Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) of NW Iowa is excited to partner with Early Childhood North Central Iowa (ECNCI). With the need for child care escalating, this partnership is working with new and established providers to expand child care services in Emmet, Palo Alto, Winnebago and Kossuth counties. 
 
Administrative Project Specialist, Sonya Jonas, is very excited about this project and praises ECNCI Director, Kris Schlievert. “Kris is passionate about children and making sure they are in the best environment possible. Offering grant funds to provide higher quality spaces for children is a high priority. With more parents working, the need for child care is growing. We are excited to partner with Kris to make this happen.”
 
ECNCI provided $10,000 in funding this year for new or expanding child care services. New centers/homes or existing providers who expand and care for additional children applied for startup funds. To date, we estimate an additional 82 child care spots are available for ECNCI counties.
