Early care and education programs set a strong foundation for our children and child care providers who are a critical part of our community.

The work child care providers do allows parents the ease of mind of knowing their children are receiving opportunities to learn, play, laugh, and grow.

NCO's Rural Communities Child Care provides free or low-cost programs and services designed to support and empower providers so that children, families, and communities benefit. We work with new child care professionals and experienced providers, offering coaching and training on quality care and guidance on the licensing process. We also administer reimbursements for healthy meals for providers who enroll on the Food Program and for child care services for families enrolled in the Alternative Payment program.
