About Us

This site contains a wealth of information about what we do to make care and services available that will assist families in providing their children with quality care through positive relationships. Among our varied offerings are full-day child care services, early literacy initiatives, parent support groups, and community collaboration efforts.

We partner with many community agencies to provide the
most appropriate services to citizens in Berkshire County. Some of these partner agencies include REACH Community Health Foundation, United Way, Girls Incorporated of Berkshire County, Department of Children and Families, the county court system, and several local school districts.

We employ approximately 70 staff persons and our operating budget is nearly $5 million dollars. The programs and services offered by our organization are funded by a combination of state contracts, foundation grants, client fees and private donations.

Child Care of the Berkshires, Inc is governed by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors. This board meets bi monthly and assists in making agency policies, advising the executive director, implementing a strategic plan, and serves as a pulse of the community.

Whether you have come to our site for general information or because you are currently involved with us through one of our programs, you will find valuable details, contact people and phone numbers. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can provide further information or clarification.

Thank you for visiting!

Anne Nemetz-Carlson, M.A.
Executive Director
