Child Care Aware of Eastern Washington, a project of Community-Minded Enterprises, works with parents and guardians, child care providers, local businesses and community organizations to help promote the availability and quality of local child care services. 

Part of a national network and a member of the Child Care of Aware of Washington, our Child Care Aware of Eastern Washington: serves eleven counties in Eastern Washington: Spokane, Stevens, Lincoln, Franklin, Benton, Pend Oreille, Whitman, Asotin, Garfield, Walla Walla and Columbia Counties.

Child Care Aware of Washington specialists provide parents with child care referrals and information on how to evaluate quality, as well as offering resources for parenting issues.  In talking with parents one-on-one, Child Care Aware can illuminate the local options available to parents and guardians, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding their children. 

This program offers new or established child care providers access to valuable training and support services.  Child Care Aware of Eastern Washington also assesses the supply and demand of child care in the community, and based on this data, work to increase the supply where needed.

Because Community-Minded Enterprises believes that early learning and the security of children are fundamental components of healthy families and communities, we advocate on a local and national level for better funding for children's programs, and for increasing the quality and quantity of child care available for working families in Eastern Washington.
