What is a Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agency?

CCR&Rs provide invaluable support to both parents and child care providers. Their role in the community usually includes services like providing child care referrals to families, program quality improvement for providers, helping providers start new programs, providing continued education training, and so much more.


As a parent, CCR&Rs can refer you to local child care programs, and if you’re eligible for child care subsidies, share information on how to apply for them. CCR&R staff may be available via phone, in-person, or online to assist your family.
