Whether you are expecting a new baby or have your children at home while you work during this pandemic, you may need child care. Family Connections can help! If you're wanting in-home, family-based care, Pollywog Program is where you can find it.

Located at LBCC, we are the child care resource and referral for Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties. We have resources and information that we can share with you.

The Pollywog Program serves families with young children and we have extended those services to include school age children during the pandemic.

Services include:

  • Child care referrals
  • COVID-19 resources for families
  • At-home ideas for families
  • Parent education
  • Classes/workshops
