Resource and referral services are a “front door” to all child care, early learning programs and community resources available to families in the area. Child Care Resource & Referral helps parents find quality child care and connects them with other community resources such as food, medical care, workforce support, housing assistance, financial assistance options and more.
It’s a great marketing tool for child care providers. Child care business owners have the opportunity to be listed in a statewide database of more than 15,000 providers for potential referrals. In addition, it gives assistance to providers applying for School Readiness or Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten programs. New child care providers receive free start-up information and access to resources to promote early childhood education. Specialists offer free professional development and technical assistance opportunities to child care providers.
CCR&R benefits all providers and they’re not required to participate in School Readiness and/or Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten to receive the benefits. To learn more about Child Care Resource & Referral, click here
