The LISC Rhode Island Child Care Facilities Fund is Celebrating its 15th Anniversary!


 

2017 marks the 15th anniversary of the launch of Rhode Island’s Child Care Facilities Fund (RICCFF). Did you know? Over the past 15 years, the RICCFF has…

  • Invested over $20 million in RI’s quality early care and educational facilities – an investment which leveraged more than $30 million in additional resources
  • Provided technical assistance to over 250 organizations and individuals
  • Developed and distributed nationally published resource guides
  • Offered group trainings to hundreds of individuals, featuring nationally recognized experts in the field
  • Implemented virtual mechanisms for resource sharing, including monthly educational eNews, a resource rich website and  an online self-guided training platform
  • Conducted a state-wide assessment of Early Learning Center facilities across the State
  • Elevated the focus on the importance of facilities as part of the quality equation

We are proud of this work and proud to partner with the early childhood community here in Rhode Island. As part of our 15th anniversary celebration, we will be sharing stories and resources designed to elevate awareness around the importance of investment in child care infrastructure. We’ll be culminating all of this with a very special event and hope you’ll join us along the way. In the meantime, please be sure to check out some of the photos from the past decade+ of our work!
