The Day Care Council of New York Receives $1M Grant
The Day Care Council of New York has received an annual grant worth $1.1 million on behalf of the Governor and the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS). The Day Care Council of New York Inc. operates more than 350 publicly funded child care centers and family child care programs in New York City.
"Day Care Council members maintain high standards of early childhood developmental, educational, and social services," said Senator Malcolm A. Smith. He explained that the funds will provide the non-profit child care referral agency with the financial resources to assist working families seeking quality child care services in Queens.
The Day Care Council of New York's Child Care Referral Program provides information and referral services to the public on center-based child care and family child care programs for special needs children, before and after-school programs and summer camp. The Day Care Council of New York uses an allinclusive database of existing child care programs throughout the city, arranged by zip code.
According to Senator Smith, these funds will allow the Day Care Council of New York to continue its mission of seeking support for, and to assist in, the development of quality child and family care services and continue to play a major role in achieving significant gains for child care in the 14th District.
