Child care networking

Keeping up with the times of business, school life, sports, and adoption details can be challenging. It is nice to be able to locate an area opportunity that can benefit many facets of life. One such facet is the need for families to have child care services during these challenging times of work related stress. One network to get familiar with in our area will help “make families work“.

Child Care Network is a non-profit agency, working to ensure that all families have access to safe, affordable, quality care for their children. They also offer classes for child care providers, and scholarship assistance (based on current funding).

As part of the acknowledging the need or safe, reliable childcare, the website offers a complete list of questions to ask potential childcare givers. This is a great resource to help remind you of the things you may not think about.

Family support programs help low income parents in several situations. They can help qualifying parents who:

* are working.
* going to school.
* in crisis situations, such as domestic violence or homelessness.
* who have just lost their jobs and are seeking employment.
* grandparents raising grandchildren.

Although this information is found in your individual county, you may find this helpful information also on their website for child protection concerns:

Michigan's Child Protection Law defines child abuse and neglect as harm or threatened harm to a child's health or welfare by a parent, legal guardian or any other person responsible for the child's health or welfare. Please report any suspected child abuse to the local child protective service office at the Michigan Department of Human Services nearest you.
