Mission Statement

To empower the community to provide for its future through developing, coordinating and strengthening programs that care for children."

For almost 40 years, Community Coordinated Care for Children, Inc. (4C) has been Florida's most trusted resource for families and children.
Founded in 1969, 4C is a private, non-profit organization that provides comprehensive services to the residents of Collier, Glades, Hendry & Lee Counties


The 4C organization operates upon these basic premises:
The child is the responsibility of the parents. Though the community has an interest in the development and education of each of its citizens, the small child is first the responsibility of its parents. It is they who must have the day-to-day relationship with the child; and in their absence due to employment, it is the parents who should make arrangements for the child's care, instructing the caretaker and providing input on a daily basis regarding the child's learning.

There are numerous child care facilities, private businesses both profit and non-profit, already providing good quality care at reasonable prices in Florida. More are opening every week and still more are seeking consultation regarding opening. If parents are enabled through 4C to pay the published rate at any child care center of their choice, many centers will compete to get the business.

  • Child Care Food Program
