Child Care Central Wins E-Gov Trailblazer Award

 

Fairfax County today announced that the Department of Family Services’ Office for Children earned a 2003 E-Gov Trailblazer Award for innovation in e-government for Child Care Central, an online resource for child care information in Fairfax County. The award will be presented by E-Gov at the E-Gov 2003 Conference on Tuesday, June 10, at the new Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The Trailblazer Award winners are recognized for excellence in enabling better government for citizens and businesses through their e-government efforts. The E-Gov conference program explores information technology’s role in improving government efficiency.

Staff from the Office for Children and the Department of Information Technology partnered on the development of the comprehensive Web-based information found within the pages of Child Care Central. The Web site has become a one-stop resource for child care information in Fairfax County and it is continually updated to reflect the growing needs of citizens. The site currently includes:

 

  • Access to a database of over 2,000 local child-care programs
  • Search capabilities that allow parents to find child care online
  • Details about the most current training classes
  • Application forms for all programs
  • Current newsletters, training catalogs, brochures and other printed materials
  • Tips for parents and child care providers about quality child care

Child Care Central is part of Fairfax County’s award winning e-government program which addresses the digital divide and has been successful in creating a “government without walls, doors or clocks,” or 24-hour government. The program utilizes multi-channel service delivery via the Web, 25 kiosks, Interactive Voice Response via touch-tone phone and a cable television government access channel.
