Happy New Year!  We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and had a peaceful rest!  Our team is excited for the new year and is planning for many initiatives for 2019!

In looking back to 2018, we want to express our appreciation to all who donated to our organization, especially during our year-end fundraising campaign.  Last year, we raised over $5000 with individual donations and other fundraising programs such as Giving Tuesday, Amazon Smile, and Amazon Associates.  This funding will benefit our programs greatly.

News from the DC Shared Services Business Alliance

FCCDC-Logo-Icon-RGBITFDC expands to a location in Washington DC!  

ITFDC has opened an office in Southeast Washington.  The new remote office houses the DC Shared Services Business Alliance team.  It offers a convenience for DC providers to participate in training and meetings, as well as for parents to attend orientations and events.  The team has already hosted its first training for providers on Dec 8, 2018, with representatives of the DC Office of Regulatory Affairs present to discuss with providers the options to expand spaces to increase childcare slots.

The office is located at 800 M St SE, Suite 2-177, Washington, DC 20003.    


TAX SEASON REMINDERS

Tax ID - During the tax return season, many parents contact our office for their providers' tax id.  Please note that for security reason, our office cannot share the information.  Please contact your provider directly.  Since providers are self-employed, they are required to either obtain a tax id or use SS#s for tax-reporting purposes.

Past Invoices - Please note that we do not provide a print-out/summary of invoices for the year.  We recommend that you keep your monthly invoices for your records and you may also reference your bank records for payments made.


This month we said goodbye to our Child Care Specialist, Caroline Park.  She has left ITFDC to pursue other professional interests.  We will miss her and wish her the best of luck!

Have you watched our 'Looking Back at 2018' video on Facebook?  Here is the link if you want to view it.

There were so many great memories this past year.  Thank You to our providers, families, staff, board members for a great 2018!
