Read a few of our testimonials and see how we’ve helped parents and their children.

“Several years ago, my life changed extremely and unexpectedly. I had become a single parent of four children due to an unfortunate situation that led to their father’s incarceration. My lack of preparation led to my children and I having to reside from place to place, while trying to budget the financial responsibilities I could scarcely afford. Previous child care providers cost a substantial amount of money, and I soon began to lose hope of ever obtaining a degree to better provide for my family. ‘This couldn’t possibly be what the future held for my family and I,’ I used to think to myself.


Then, one day I attended a community outreach program, where I met with staff from the ChildCareGroup Martin Luther King, Jr Center. They were very pleasant, and the enrollment requirements and process met my children’s and my needs. The terrific part about this program is my ability to save on child care costs and being able to utilize the extended hours of operation that my children could attend. This allowed me to have more time to work towards long term goals, such as attending school and becoming a business owner. CCG puts an emphasis on activities in which parent and child involvement is essential. This has led to a better connection and more interaction between my children and me. Most importantly, my children’s education and advancement to being introduced to basic learning objectives occurred much earlier in their lives—versus when I was a child—and this was the preliminary start for my children on the road to success.


The support, polite and active nature of the staff at MLK made it possible for me to achieve many accomplishments, and today I am the proud owner of Royalty Tax & Business. As of now, I don’t think being an independent business owner, while only a short term away from obtaining my bachelor’s degree in nursing, and still being active with my children’s education could have transpired the way it did, if it wasn’t for this wonderful organization. The thing I will never overlook is that ChildCareGroup played a major role in making success possible for me, and this is the reason I owe my gratitude and honor to this organization.”

“I can’t imagine where Ethan and I would be without ChildCareGroup.


When I got pregnant at 13, I remember feeling like I had no hope left. But when I went to my first sonogram, I saw Ethan and I told myself ‘I’m going to take care of you no matter what. I know I’m young, but I’ll figure it out. I’ll love you and I will not let you go.’


I was so excited when I found the Bock Center and I enrolled Ethan in the program when he was three- years-old. Being a single mom with little support, ChildCareGroup showed me how to be involved in Ethan’s life and since he’s been at the center, I’ve seen such an improvement in him. It’s an amazing feeling to know that my child is learning all day while I’m able to work and attend school.


I am proud to say that with ChildCareGroup’s support, I was able to graduate high school at 17 with my high school diploma and my associate’s degree. Now I’m taking college classes, working two jobs, and Ethan is in his last year at the Bock Center getting prepared for kindergarten.


To everyone who supports ChildCareGroup, thank you. You helped change mine and Ethan’s lives forever.”

Laura Dominguez was nervous when she realized she needed to put her 2.5-year-old son, Joshua, in child care. But it didn’t take long for her to realize it was an impactful necessity.


“I was able to work, cleaning houses, buildings, helping people put teams together. I would not have been able to do any of that if I had not had childcare,” she says. “It’s hard to find childcare that has good food, really feels like home, the atmosphere, the teachers.”


And that’s what her family found at ChildCareGroup Bock in Bishop Arts (which closed for relocation in 2018). Their second son, Joe, would also go to the center later.

“We’re just grateful because we wouldn’t have been able to afford it,” she says. “I was able to get them used to going to school, waking up, socializing, having fun. It was just a blessing for us. This really helped me to just make new friends at the center, volunteer, meet people, and also just have them be involved with a really good childcare, that was just awesome. They’re always learning.”
