Parent Cafés

Parent Café Events

At a Parent Café event, parents bring their children and enjoy a delicious meal together. After, children will have separate activities set up for them with quality childcare staff, rated by Youngstar to ensure a safe environment. During this time, parents will discuss different parenting topics in groups. Throughout the time together, the groups will rotate and continue discussing various topics that parents are interested in. Parent Café events are listed on the Community Calendar

YoungStar

YoungStar

YoungStar is Wisconsin’s child care quality rating and improvement system. We give parents the tools and information they need to raise happy, healthy kids. And, we help preschools, home-based programs, learning centers, and other child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow.

How do we do it?

  • By objectively measuring child care quality. We rate thousands of child care providers, awarding up to five stars for the best quality of care.
  • By giving parents an easy way to compare their local child care options and find the programs that match their family’s lifestyle, budget, and special needs.
  • By supporting providers with tools and training to deliver high-quality care
  • By setting a consistent standard for child care quality

Connections Program at Family Connections

Family Connections, Inc., a Child Care Resource & Referral Agency, developed the Connections program in 1998 to help support the financial needs of low-income, qualifying families in paying for their child care costs.

With over 70% of children in care outside their homes, many of these children are enrolled in family or group center child care programs while their parents or caregivers are at work. Covering the cost of quality child care can be very challenging on a family’s budget.

Connections offers qualifying parents and caregivers:

Financial Assistance
Weekly Child Care Fees
Registration/Enrollment Fees
Care Management

Through both direct financial assistance paid to the regulated child care programs and care management components for the adult parent(s)/caregiver(s), families are supported in their pursuit towards self-sufficiency.
Children of the participants receive quality care from regulated providers who offer consistency to children, in a safe and healthy environment that stimulates early learning.

Please contact Terri Schultz ext. 107, to see if you qualify for this program. She can also be reached by email at: terris@familyconnectionscc.org
