Who They Are
4C for Children was founded in 1972 in Cincinnati, Ohio, by a coalition of agencies and funders with the purpose of coordinating, planning, and advocating for quality child care for working families. They are a child care resource and referral agency that supports everyone who cares for young children, from parents to childcare providers, to ensure high-quality early education and care for all children.
4C for Children believes that all children should have a quality early learning experience, enter school ready to succeed, and reach their full potential. Their mission is to educate and support the adults who care for young children and advocate for public support for quality early education and care for all children.
