Finding the right child care setting is an important and stressful decision for parents. To help in that process, we have trained Child Care Resource & Referral specialists who can locate quality child care based on your family’s specific needs. And we can connect you with community resources such as food, medical care, workforce support, housing assistance, and financial assistance options.
Our specialists also provide information about state-funded early learning programs, such as School Readiness, Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten, Head Start and Early Head Start. There are no fees or costs associated with CCR&R services. And, parents can access CCR&R as many times as necessary.
The CCR&R program is part of a statewide network funded by Florida’s Office of Early Learning. In partnership with the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County and Early Learning Coalition of Osceola County, CCR&R provides free resource and referral services to all families seeking information on quality early care and education programs.
