Your child care business is a vital resource, not only for the parents and children you serve, but also for Houston’s economy. Child care accessibility and quality is the foundation for Houston’s workforce. Without it, millions of Houstonians – and especially vulnerable populations – will be unable to find work or do the jobs required in the 21st century. Collaborative for Children provides the training necessary to ensure that child care center leaders have the business skills and practices in place to serve families without interruption.
