Review for Connections For Children, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Connections provided me with the names of local child care providers that I could meet with when I was looking for full-time child care. Subsequently I participated in the Santa Monica Early Childhood Education Task Force and learned more about what this organization does. Not only do they act as a resource for parents but they help child care providers with education, training, resources, etc. so that smaller, in-home child care providers can offer the same type of high quality care that larger, center-based providers are able to offer. It truly is a win/win situation for parents and providers since Connections works both to increase the availablity of child care in Santa Monica and raise the quality of it at the same time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Finding childcare for my family since I was working full time. Childcare is expensive and Connections focuses on helping smaller providers offer quality child care services. This helps parents by providing more and less expensive options while raising the overall quality of care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Advertise it to a wider audience. I wish more parents realized that this resource was there for them.

Role:  Client Served & I received assistance from this organization when I was looking for childcare.
