Power By Logo4c 2 25 2021 9 49 04 AM

4C is a nonprofit serving 28 counties in Southern Indiana. More than forty years ago, 4C started out as a true grassroots organization with a few local child care directors and preschool teachers meeting to network and share information about child care. 4C was incorporated in 1969. In the late 1990s, research about brain development in children identified issues around child care as national priorities. 4C hired its first paid employees and the organization began to grow.

History

4C is a nonprofit serving 28 counties in Southern Indiana. More than forty years ago, 4C started out as a true grassroots organization with a few local child care directors and preschool teachers meeting to network and share information about child care. 4C was incorporated in 1969. In the late 1990s, research about brain development in children identified issues around child care as national priorities. 4C hired its first paid employees and the organization began to grow.

In 2003, the State of Indiana selected 4C as the regional Child Care Resource and Referral agency for Southern Indiana. Support from the Welborn Baptist Foundation raised 4C’s profile and the level of services provided by 4C to a whole new level in 2004. With support from Welborn, 4C piloted Paths to QUALITY (now Indiana’s official child care quality rating and improvement system) and implemented family coaching based on the Parents as Teachers model. In 2011, 4C assumed the role of Child Care Development Fund (child care subsidy) Intake Agent for Southern Indiana. Building on efforts to reach new populations, 4C designed and introduced 4C Play & Learn, programming for family, friend, and neighbor caregivers in 2012. Along with other community partners, 4C also worked to convene and inform a business roundtable on early education in 2013.
