Cypress Hills Child Care Corporation (CHCCC) has served the Cypress Hills community of Brooklyn, New York, since 1990.

The mission of CHCCC is to strengthen families in our community by increasing the availability of quality, affordable child care for low-income families and creating entrepreneurship opportunities for low-income women.

Each year, we serve approximately 500 children and their families through three programs: Child Care Center, Family Day Care Network, and Head Start Family Day Care Program.

The teachers and staff of CHCCC nurture the hearts and minds of our neighborhood’s youngest residents. We help children ages 2 to 4 build the early literacy, numeracy, and social skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.

Our work is especially critical because the children we serve come from low-income families who cannot afford private-pay childcare. In addition, our Family Day Care Network helps women start up their very own licensed, home-based childcare businesses, helping low-income women to become entrepreneurs, achieve financial stability, and increase the availability of childcare for working families in our community.
