For Business Owners

Child care is a constant concern for working parents. Employees who are uncertain about the person caring for their children are distracted, less reliable and less productive. Studies have shown that child care problem can lead to tardiness, absenteeism, higher turnover rate, higher recruiting and training costs.

Child Care Connections serving Columbia, Greene and Ulster Counties maintains an up to date database of legal child care providers in the three counties. Skilled parent referral and consumer education managers are available to parents FREE of charge to assist with their child care search. The parent referral manager can either come to your business and meet with the employees in person, can talk with the parents over the phone or through email. The manager explains to parents the different types of child care and what to look for when searching for a safe, quality setting for their children. They offer parents child care referrals to available legal child care programs, provide information about child care subsidies and offer interested parents help to determine eligibility for financial assistance.
