The Take A Break (TAB) program is a free childcare service in Humboldt County for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age and up to 10 hours a month per child. Additional hours may be earned by taking a parenting class or participating in an in-home service through the Parent Connection.
Quality child care is offered from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. except for holidays. The TAB program can be used for many reasons: to run errands, exercise, meet appointments, spend time with other family members, or just to have some quiet time away from the children. However, it may not be used as a back-up babysitting service while parents are working.
