CNC, built on LINC and Occasional Child Care programs, offers one comprehensive system for delivering quality programs to immigrant children in a variety of formats and settings. The model also ensures that CIC’s child care support can be modernized and streamlined in tandem with new policy initiatives and changes in adult service delivery.
