Impact Polk grant through the Community Foundation’s Grants Committee

Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) is a program that partners with local child care providers and area businesses and donors to raise funds matched by the state to provide early education and child care services to children who would otherwise be placed on a wait list for these services in Polk County. The program provides safe, affordable, high quality, early education opportunities for the children of low income families whose parents are working or going to school. The children of these low income families receive high quality early education and care that will set them on the best possible path for future success in school and in life by focusing on preparing them to enter school ready and eager to learn.

Early Learning Coalition of Polk County’s Child Care Executive Partnership received funding from Impact Polk.
