Child Care of the Berkshires is guided by the following beliefs: 

  • High quality child care encourages a child’s total growth and development in physical, social language, and cognitive areas.
  • Families need to be linked to a variety of resources in the community.
  • Services are best provided in a collaborative and cooperative fashion.
  • Child care, parent support and educational programs should reflect the cultural diversity in our communities.

Get connected.  Get answers. Mass 2-1-1 is the easy-to-remember toll-free number to call for free statewide access to health and human services information and referrals. It’s the link between people who need help and people who can give help.
