Community services

Ohio4Kids staff members are available to work with your community to increase child care options and improve quality.

Child care planning
Our professional facilitators can help your community meet to assess child care needs and make plans to meet those needs for the future.

Want to know the average cost of care for a preschooler in a center near your home? Is the need for child care growing, decreasing, or are there other trends that might affect my child care business? How many infant care slots are available in our community? Do we need more? Ohio4Kids can provide customized reports on child care supply and demand in your community.

Enhanced referral services for employers
We can visit your company and provide parent seminars over the lunch hour or at staff meetings. We can provide one-on-one child care referral services at the worksite. We can also speak with your human resources folks about how to provide this service to your employees on an ongoing basis. Become a Family Friendly Employer
