Resource and Referral Program
The Resource and Referral Program, (R&R) provides free child care referrals to anyone in the community, regardless of income. We maintain information on licensed family child care homes, licensed child care centers and exempt providers. When a request for child care comes in we gather information about the family, including name, address, phone number, child’s age, request of hours and location needed. We then match the child’s need to providers available in the area requested.
If you need child care referrals, give us a call at 895-3572, or (800) 345-8627.
R&R staff are also available to answer questions about how to find quality child care, or help parents feel more comfortable asking the right questions when they interview providers. We offer referrals only and not recommendations as we feel parents can best determine what is appropriate care for their children. One of our goals is to raise the level of expertise in consumers of child care. R&R staff informs consumers of their right to view complaint information or fingerprint exemptions about the child care facility either at the child care location or by calling or visiting Community Care Licensing.
