Springboard Child Care emerged from a collaborative effort between local community colleges, early childhood councils, and community partners to address the shortage in quality and accessible child care for working families and student parents.
Through the collaborative, Springboard observed child care's significant unmet need for the community, not only for student parents from the Community College of Aurora, but for the community at large. Child care's current position as an essential service is not able to meet the needs of enough families while child care providers are struggling to stay afloat financially.
To address these issues, Springboard offers co-working facilities, peer network support, access to technologies and business tools for the small child care programs that parents desire and communities need.
