The Highland Park/Highwood Home Child Care Association is a network of child care homes that provide a nurturing atmosphere for learning in the earliest years. The homes serve infants, toddlers and young children of families who live and/or work in Highland Park and Highwood. The Association educates providers and parents about developmentally appropriate practices so they recognize quality care. It also helps people interested in having a career and setting up their own licensed home child care programs.
The not-for-profit Association is supported by funds from the local community which make it possible for the providers to include enrichment services in music, art, occupational and speech therapy and nutrition during the course of the child care day.
