Help Quality Child Care Go Viral

Truth: you spend more time than you will admit to “playing” on Facebook. (I admit it too–though part of it is my job...)

It’s okay; here at Childcare Resources we want you to be active on Facebook (sometimes). Why? Research shows that more and more people are using Facebook as a search engine and as a reference for local services.

This means our visibility is increased every time you engage with us via social media–either by liking a post, commenting on a picture, sharing a status, or retweeting a Tweet (just to name a few).

Why is this important, you ask? Easy: we are a nonprofit organization. Our sustainability depends on how well we serve the public.

The more people who NEED access to our services, the more likely we are to receive funding to provide our services! (In case you didn’t know, nonprofit proposals are an extensive process that requires us to establish need, provide results, and compile client data.)

So, again, why are we posting this? WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Childcare Resources wants to increase our Facebook visibility so more people know about us, use our services, and increase the likelihood of enhancing our services to the Central Alabama population!

Your mission: Help us reach 500 (or more!!) Facebook “Likes”!

Your incentive: this fabulous prize–a one night’s stay at the new Hyatt Regency Birmingham – The Wynfrey Hotel in Riverchase Galleria and a free carousel birthday party for up to 10 guests.

The Wheels on the (Library) Bus Go Round and Round!

Our NEW van returned to service today delivering FREE resources to area child care providers in Bessemer and McCalla. Visits will be made to child care providers in Blount, Shelby and Walker counties later this month.

Due to a generous grant from Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and additional support from Crown Automobile along with support for materials from PNC Grow Up Great and United Way of Central Alabama, Childcare Resources announces the return of the agency’s Mobile Library service.

This free service is available to area child care providers in Blount, Shelby and Walker counties and rural areas of Jefferson County. The Mobile Library delivers much needed books, music, play items, puppets, and teacher curriculum and lesson planning guides to child care programs to improve the quality of child care. During the month of October as we celebrate the new vehicle and return of this valuable service, child care providers may choose to keep books and other resources for their programs. Childcare Resources is donating useable materials from their collection to child care programs as the agency prepares to stock their shelves with new resources for 2014.

For more information on this service, contact the agency at 205-252-1991 ext. 315.
