Southeast Early Childhood Support Network

The Wayne-Oakland-Macomb Resource Center serves families and providers in the tri-county area. We are housed at United Way of Southeastern Michigan's headquarters within the heart of downtown Detroit. Our team is here to help families find the child care option in Metro Detroit that is best for your child. 

Services for Providers:

  • Coaching and consultation for developing quality improvement plans.
  • Financial assistance for improving the child care or preschool setting.
  • Information about professional development and training opportunities.
  • A free Lending library of books, CDs, puzzles and other learning materials.

Our Resource Center is part of the Bib to Backpack team at United Way of Southeastern Michigan. It takes thousands of intentional learning moments led by skilled child care professionals to help prepare children for kindergarten. The moments between the bib and the backpack make all the difference for school readiness and lifelong success. Child care providers have the power to give children a great start with United Way’s Bib to Backpack initiative.
