What We Do

Community Child Cares Solutions offers free developmental screening for children birth to 5 years old. The Screening is a quick check of your child’s developmental milestones. The screening takes a snapshot of your child’s current skills and helps accurately identify children who may be at risk for delays - the screening does not give a diagnosis.  Regular screening provides a fast and helpful look at how your child is doing in important areas like communication, social skills, motor skills, and problem-solving skills.


Screening can identify your child’s strengths, uncover new milestones to celebrate, and reveal any areas where your child may need support. It helps you understand your child’s development and know what to look for next. And it helps you work with doctors and educators to plan next steps when it makes the most difference—your child’s critical first years of life.

Books, Balls & Blocks

Our Family Engagement Specialists coordinates free fun family-friendly interactive events through our Books, Balls & Blocks (BBB) initiative which provides the community with an entertaining venue where information about child development, developmental screenings, and community resources are provided. Our events include activity stations revolving around books (emergent literacy), balls (gross and fine motor and problem-solving skills) and blocks (emergent math and fine motor skills).​
