Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) is a free confidential service that helps families select quality early learning programs for children birth through 5 as well as programs for school age children.

CCR&R services include information about child development and developmentally preferred practices, community resources, consumer education, and financial assistance options.

Our trained CCR&R staff can help answer questions about identifying quality early learning programs. Staff will provide families with a list of child care providers customized to meet your family’s specific needs.

Providers and potential providers can contact Child Care Resource and Referral for information on professional development, trainings, and technical assistance opportunities.

All families receiving Child Care Resource and Referral services will be contacted to complete a voluntary survey to gauge your customer service experience with our office. All responses are anonymous and confidential and will not affect your services.
