Economic Security Corporation of Southwest Area


In addition to the Early Head Start classrooms, Early Head Start partners with several childcare centers and homes in the community to provide quality childcare services.  Here is a list of our partners:

  • Pumpkin Patch Daycare, Joplin MO
  • Michelle Phillips Family Childcare Home, Joplin MO
  • Footprints and Friends, Too LLC,  Joplin, MO
  • Kidz Clubhouse and Daycare, Joplin, MO
  • Erin Yost Family Childcare Home, Neosho, MO

Our childcare partners follow the same performance standards and childcare licensing requirements as our own classrooms.  They use an approved educational curriculum and follow the same nutritional standards.  Our grant allows us to provide funding and resources to help the partners set up high-quality services for not only the Early Head Start children in their center, but also use the funds to impact their entire business.  We are very fortunate to have these community partnerships!
