Community Care for Kids (CCK) is the child care resource and referral program serving the EEC Metro Boston Region. The program consists of several components designed to help families make educated child care choices, improve the affordability of child care for income eligible families, and increase the quality and availability of child care services. Referral and support is available to child care providers as well.
