PATCH is a small nonprofit that continually accomplishes big things in Hawaii! Their biggest asset is their people, who genuinely care about supporting child care providers to be the best they can be, and ensuring our keiki receive quality care and attention. Thank you PATCH for all that you do!

PATCH has been an asset to our preschool program in offering free or low cost workshops/classes to our families. The resources given to us through PATCH allow us to educate our families and ultimately benefit the little ones we serve.

PATCH training classes- not only hosting them at our program but also teaching the classes to the families and other staff members.

People Attentive to Children Hawaii is a wonderful organization. They provide so many services. Families can go to them to request information about child care options in their area, they provide much needed training for Early Childhood Professionals. They have taken on daunting task of maintaining and revising the Hawaii Registry of ECE Professionals as well as administer the disbursements for Preschool Open Doors. The County Co-ordinators of PATCH are dedicated people who truly believe in the importance of early childhood education.

The Great!

PATCH has provided me with the support I needed to grow a successful childcare business and work in the field I love -- helping families with young children. Through PATCH I have been able to receive educational grants, equipment grants, training classes and referrals to my family childcare which has allowed me to provide childcare for numerous families over the last 5 years. PATCH is definitely a great nonprofit that supports the families and young children in Hawaii to help ensure that the first five years of a child's life are met with educated and qualified professionals that provide a great foundation for future learning and success.

The Great!

I am a licensed professional child care provider and would like to share one story of how patch helps families with child care issues. I was contact by a patch and a mother that has a child with unique learning. Because I am experienced in this field due to two of my adopted sons with this same unique learning PATCH was able to help this mother. Leading her in the right direction to finding appropiate childcare for this child. PATCH helps.

I am also a board member for the last two years, but my relationship with PATCH goes back much further.
PATCH on Maui continues to be responsive to community needs and requests for information. The support of the PATCH staff has been invaluable as we work together as part of a community to
increase the quality and amount of early learning opportunities for children. In my role at University of Hawai'i Maui College, I have been able to partner with PATCH on many things - from providing space for PATCH classes to accessing important, up to date data from PATCH.
PATCH has grown and evolved as a resource and referral, adapting to the times and continuing to stay healthy despite the economic downturn.

The Great!
