4C for Children Childcare Resources
The City of Kettering is participating in a pilot program aimed at creating more in-home child care options. A study by 4C For Children found that there are only a few state-licensed residential child care sites in the city.
An in-home care site is required to have an Ohio license to house more than six children. 4C For Children provides childcare resources for 15 counties in Southwest Ohio. State-licensed in-home centers can accept publicly funded childcare vouchers.
City Council approved $100,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to help create more sites while giving working families more child care options.
Residents interested in becoming in-home licensed providers should contact Deb Camp at at 937-723-2725.
