Nondiscrimination Policy 
Catherwood Home Child Care is committed to providing an environment that is free from discrimination in employment and services because of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or age.

We are very proud to be an important part of the Austin community.  We stand ready to assist all families in meeting their child care needs.

At Catherwood, we often see families new to the area.  These families need assistance in connecting with the varieties of resources that are available to them in the community.  We are often their best connection to these resources.

Catherwood Home Child Care is owned, operated and staffed by the Parenting Resource Center. Catherwood Home Child care grew out of a collaboration with local employers and community leaders who identified that bi-lingual and non-standard hours of child care were barriers for employees. Established in March 2000, Catherwood began to provide child care for families of our employer partners and the public sector.

Catherwood has established relationships with these employers:
-Quality Pork Processors
- Hormel Foods
-Cooperative Response Center
-Crisis Nursery-Mower/Freeborn County

In our first year of operation, Catherwood provided 75,000 hours of non-standard care to 178 children from 117 families, representing 12 different countries.
