Community Coordinated Child Care of Union (CCCC) is a private non-profit Resource and Referral Agency dedicated to ensuring Union County has quality child care that is affordable and accessible to every child in care or who is in need of care. The agency is located at The Rahway Public Library 3rd floor. Community Coordinated Child Care has been in operation for 41 years and is open from Monday to Friday from 9 to 5 pm. Community Coordinated Child Care serves many families in the community and empowers them to be knowledgeable of their child care options. The agency provides Child Care referrals, subsidies to eligible families, leadership, education and training to the child care community and families.
Community Coordinated Child Care is the lead agency of the Union County Council for Young Children. The UCCYC is a place where parents, guardians, caregivers, faith-based organizations, and local community agencies can come together to speak up, share concerns, advocate and create solutions to improve the health and well-being of young children.
For the last three years, the Union County Council for Young Children has been consistently working together with parents and stakeholders on many different projects. Parents are actively involved and are a key component of the UCCYC and our projects, especially the Suggested Document Handbook which has been our biggest and most successful yet. Our parents and stakeholders have dedicated many hours of their time and effort to this project, and ensuring that the needs of our families and community are met. We are all very excited to be doing an official release of this suggested document Handbook at our upcoming Kick-Off event.
