Childcare Resources of Indian River operates proven programs to elevate and promote the highest quality early childhood development and education in Indian River County, focusing on economically challenged children and families. According to our Indian River Indicators, from 2017 to 2027 we can project a 27.8% increase in children enrolled in nursery school or preschool in our county. Childcare Resources provides programs that will impact this increase while ensuring quality education for all enrolled. Childcare Resources’ Early Education Outreach Coaching Program provides coaching for early educators by helping them first identify goals for their classroom and then implement specific strategies to achieve those goals. This can provide more children with higher quality early education.
Childcare Resources is also a part of our Endowment Partners Program (EPP). The purpose of the EPP is to help local charities plan for their long-term sustainability by growing a permanent endowment fund. During a 12-month program, participants learn about endowments, planned giving, investment management and marketing solutions that inspire loyal donors to make planned gifts from their estates. The program is coordinated by IRCF team member Yamilet Cendejas.
To learn how to give outright contributions today or bequests and other planned gifts for future support, please see “Planned Giving: Leave a Legacy” under our “Giving” section or go to the Childcare Resources website.
