Beyond Care Childcare Cooperative

Categories: Child Care

A socially responsible cooperative business whose members provide child care services.

We believe that every child deserves to be loved, that’s why we care for each one with the utmost respect. We also believe that children need more than just supervision, so we are trained to educate and engage them in ways that nurture and stimulate their development. Beyond Care was founded on the basis of democracy, equality and justice. We promote living wage jobs in a safe and healthy working environment, while promoting personal growth and educational opportunities for its members.

We now have 38 cooperative members who have completed business development and nanny training through our respective probationary periods.

Beyond Care Childcare Cooperative receives support and guidance from the Center for Family Life in Sunset Park, a nonprofit community-based organization providing social services for children, youth and families in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, since 1978.
