Child Care and Employers in Broward County

Employers today realize the benefits of providing child care assistance for their employees.   Family Central is here to help child care owners and directors help their low-income employees with child care.


Many employers find that helping employees pay for child care can be the most valuable benefit of all. Low-income employees can be helped through participation in Florida’s Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) program, where the State matches employer contributions dollar for dollar. The first step in participating as a child care provider is to send us an email or call us at 954-724-6982
