Child CARE Resource and Referral

Child Care Resource and Referral links parents, child care providers, employers and the community to provide accessible, affordable, quality child care to all children. From the database, staff give parents referrals to a variety of child care settings. Parents receive education on how to choose safe, appropriate child care and information on community resources.

Providers on the database receive referrals and support for their child care business. Resource and Referral offers training so providers can become professional in the child care and education field.
