This service offers your employees a customized and enhanced child care resource and referral service. Our experienced Family Connections Specialists have access to an extensive up-to-date database of programs for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. It includes all local, regulated programs (child care centers, family and group family child care programs and school age care programs) as well as other types of child care like summer camps, nursery schools, employment agencies for nanny placements and au pair agencies. For those employees living outside of the county, we have close working relationships with resource and referral agencies throughout the country so all employees will get the same comprehensive, individualized service.

The referrals given to your employees are not recommendations. Child Care Resources of Rockland does not recommend, nor endorse a particular individual or program.
