2021-2022 ANNUAL REPORT:
The Story of Your Support



To our generous supporters, thank you for investing in Childcare Resources over the past 28 years, to which I’m honored to say ten of those I have shared with you as Executive Director. Because of your generosity, we can ensure the availability and affordability of high-quality early education and care, provide whole family support, and provide continued learning opportunities for early childhood educators in Indian River County. There is so much to be grateful for and your support is at the top of the list!

When I first started at Childcare Resources a decade ago, I knew we had something special here, something that every child and family would benefit from. We have been able to grow the organization from impacting around 100 children, to expanding our space and implementing robust programming that reaches nearly 3,000 children each year. That is a big deal for our community, and could not happen without you!

I feel pride and excitement as I look back at the last decade, but even more, as I look ahead to what can be accomplished in the next decade. Our Board of Directors and other key advisors have been planning for the future and set the bar high for Childcare Resources as we pursue our goal of increasing the quality of early childhood education throughout Indian River County, and beyond.

Thank you for making this critical work possible by investing in Childcare Resources, and ultimately investing in the future of our community. Together, we can change a generation of children, one year at a time!


Warm regards,

Shannon McGuire Bowman, MEd, MA, CFRE

The Story of Your Support


"Without you, I would not have been able to afford such great care for my boys!"

You write a story of educating children

Through your support, Childcare Resources provides a spectrum of early childhood education services that benefit the entire community. It starts with providing high-quality, nationally-accredited care to children from across Indian River County. But it doesn't end there...

When a student is in need of additional services or resources, the Wellness and Early Intervention Program (WEIP) jumps in to coordinate assessments and therapeutic services. Students can receive occupational, speech, and other therapies during the school day.

"I wouldn't be able to attend school and work full-time if it weren't for you.
I am eternally grateful for you!"

WEIP also assists program families, connecting parents and caregivers with local resources to ensure that basic needs are met. Through this support, program families in need have been able to secure housing, furniture, food, and more. 

In addition, parents and families stay involved with their child’s education through volunteer service and participation. As a result of your help, Childcare Resources provides training and engagement opportunities for program families. 

"I am so happy to be given the opportunity to reach my goal of becoming a teacher and helping children learn and grow.
Thank you for all of your help!"

strengthening a community

Through your generosity, Childcare Resources provides training to local educators, too. One-on-one coaching, intense training, and opportunities in higher education work together to help local early childhood educators accomplish their own goals and become more effective in the classroom.

Your support enables effective teachers, supported families, and individualized care to provide the life-changing impacts of quality early education. Together, we are changing our community one child at a time.

Thank you!

For some, volunteering is giving.
For our volunteers, it's a way of living.

Childcare Resources students, teachers, and staff  look forward to welcoming back our school volunteers at the start of 2023.
