2012 Report to the Community
Kathryn Flores of Child Care Resources was named the Executive Excellence Chief Financial Officer of the Year on January 31, 2013 at the Four Seasons hotel by Seattle Business magazine. What is exceptional about Kathryn’s candidacy is that she beat out so many corporate CFOs; but that is how the Executive Excellence Awards were designed in the first place – not only to recognize the best in their professions, but to consider community and significant civic contribution. She is pictured with CCR’s Accounting team.

Every Child Deserves a Great Start
At least 125,000 children in King County spend time in child care every week, but much of that care is not as good as it should be. Surveys by state education officials show that 55 percent of children entering Washington's kindergarten classes are not completely ready to enter school. Among low-income children, the percentage is even higher. Not only are too many youngsters unprepared for school, but thousands of families in King County struggle to find affordable, quality child care. High-quality early learning programs set the foundation for children to learn the skills thy need to succeed in school.
