Community Partnerships

As an agency committed to meeting the needs of children, families and community, BCS has worked hard to support the increase of high quality child care slots in the Burlington area. We strive to educate members of our community about early education issues, the need for high quality child care, and the impact child care has in the community. In support of these commitments, BCS works collaboratively with many area agencies to offer a range of supports children and families need to thrive.
