Child Care Connections is a child care resource and referral service. It is a non-profit community-based organization funded in part by Smart Start through the Cleveland County Partnership for Children and the North Carolina Division of Child Development & Early Education.

Child Care Connections aids families in their search for a quality child care environment that meets their individual needs; we assist child care providers in maintaining or increasing the quality of the care given; and serve the community as a resource for distributing data and information regarding early childhood issues.
Vision Statement:

Child Care Connections will be the leader in establishing opportunities for quality childcare environments for every child in Cleveland County.
We care deeply about the children and families in our community. We are here for you as
we all face the challenges related to the Coronavirus. This pandemic has brought rapid
changes and much stress in our daily lives. Parents, child care providers, businesses and our
economy are significantly impacted. We will continue to advocate for safe and healthy
prevention strategies and educational opportunities in our community. We must all make
intentional efforts to remain healthy and curb the spread of this virus.
