Welcome to Child Care of the Berkshires

The mission of Child Care of the Berkshires, Inc.  is to strengthen families through high quality child care, education, support services and advocacy.

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

  • 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.

A huge thank you to organizers Sue and Tim Crane who completed a ten day trek from Boston to Pittsfield in May to raise awareness and much needed funds for Massachusetts children (walkformachildren.org). We are delighted to have been one of five programs selected to receive a donation of $1300 as a result and are excited to be part of the 2015 Walk for Massachusetts Children.
