Welcome to 4Cs of Alameda County!

4Cs is a non-profit family resource agency dedicated to strengthening children, families and child care providers in Alameda County since 1972. We provide access to affordable, quality child care by connecting families and providers to a wide network of community partners, child focused resources and financial assistance programs.

4Cs offers an extensive database of state licensed child care providers, payment assistance programs, child health and nutrition education and a staff of specialists who speak multiple languages.  Our child care information and referral services are free to all parents, regardless of income.

We also support local child care providers with free and low cost training, business counseling, professional development, and funding in order to improve the quality of child care services within Alameda County.

The result is stronger children, families, and child care providers who enrich the communities around them.

Thank you for visiting our website, and we look forward to your continued partnership with 4Cs.
