The USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) helps daycares and after-school programs by providing funding for nutritious meals each day. But it takes a sponsor, or a direct contract with the State, to obtain these funds.

Since 1971, our organization has been a part of what's become the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Learn more about this program by exploring this website. When you're ready, you can get a Start-up Kit emailed to you with everything you'll need to get started.

Training Class Schedule 2024-2025

Child Care Resources provides training classes for Early Childhood Professionals. The classes are taught by seasoned practitioners who know what it is really like to be alone in a classroom of Toddlers. The classes are packed with "real-life" examples, and tricks and tips of the trade. Participants leave with "Classroom Survival Kits," and classroom materials that can be put to use right away.
