Child Care Collaborative Network

The Mid-America Regional Council’s Department of Early Learning (MARC) administers the Child Care Collaborative Network for Missouri’s Northwest region, which provides leadership to the development and implementation of a community-driven, outcomes-based plan for a comprehensive early learning system.

MARC Early Learning receives funding from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Office of Early Childhood and partners with the Local Investment Commission, The Family Conservancy and the St. Joseph Youth Alliance to support the implementation of targeted services.
