The 2015 Board of Directors of the
St. Lawrence Child Care Council, Inc.

Founded in 1989, the St. Lawrence Child Care Council (SLCCC) was established to support and expand a child care system to improve the availability of quality child care options and services in St. Lawrence County.  The SLCCC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit child care resource and referral agency providing information, education and resources to families, providers, community members and employers to meet the early care and learning needs in our community.  Our services are funded by the NYS Office of Children & Family Services, St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services, SUNY Research Foundation and through revenues generated from training and/or fees for service.
