Child Care Partners


Our agency partners with numerous privately-owned child care programs throughout the Greater Columbus Area. This option is primarily available for families who either do not qualify for Head Start services or who live in communities which do not have a Head Start center nearby. CDCFC partner programs share our commitment to service excellence and like CDCFC centers, are fully licensed by the State of Ohio.

In the Child Care Partnership program:

  • Children receive primarily the same Head Start services as those in our Center-Based option
  • Nutritious daily meals and snacks are provided
  • Average child-teacher ratio is 15 to 2
  • Only Head Start services are available; Early Head Start is not provided at this time


CDCFC is a mandated child abuse and neglect reporting agency, any suspected case(s) of child abuse and/or neglect will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
