Child Care Provider Database
of hundreds of tables and over 2.8 million records,
CHILDBASE® is the child care resource database
that allows CECI to provide national child care information
services. Our consultants assist, educate, and support
working parents in their pursuit of quality child care.
CHILDBASE® includes child care centers, family
day care providers, nurseries, preschools,
before/after-school care programs, special needs programs,
adoption resources, sick/emergency child care, vacation
care, occasional care, back-up care, in-home care, schools
(K-12), and literacy/tutor services.
- To be included
in CECI's child care database, CHILDBASE® (like ELDERBASE®),
a provider must be licensed, certified, registered or
otherwise lawfully providing care as dictated by the state,
county, or municipal regulatory agency. In states where
licensing is not obtainable and providers are legally
exempt, the provider must comply with the stringent rules
and regulations CECI has established for quality assurance.
The latter increases the quality of the referred provider,
home, or facility.
- Our philosophy
is to assist employees in creating the optimal child care
environment and thus eliminate the work/family conflicts
they experience as working parents. Fostering a personal
relationship between parents and our child care specialists
allows us to provide the most suitable resources, educate
parents in the evaluation of their child's day care
environment, and decrease the natural anxiety related to
choosing the best environments.
