The Early Learning Coalition of Brevard’s Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) program is a resource available to parents and child care providers in our community. The CCR&R program is part of the statewide Early Learning Child Care Resource and Referral Network funded by the Office of Early Learning. Becoming a part of the CCR&R Network allows parents and members of the community to learn more about the services you provide.
Local Resource and Referral (R&R) agencies offer free information and referral services to all families seeking quality early care and school readiness programs and out of school time solutions. R&R is an information service which does not license, endorse, nor recommend any type of early care and education provider over another. It is suggested that parents visit several programs to determine which one best serves the needs of their family. Parents are encouraged to visit providers before a decision is made to place their child.
The R&R network maintains the only comprehensive, statewide database of child care, school readiness and school age programs and service providers.
Parents access the information contained in the database by contacting the Early Learning Coalition’s CCR&R program. Resource and Referral’s trained Specialists can identify area centers, family child care homes, after school programs, head start programs, preschools, faith-based programs and summer camps that meet the needs of both parent and child. Referrals can be provided based on many different criteria including: teacher credentials, location, ages, special programs, hours of operation and availability through a database of information. Because the information is updated regularly, the most current information is made available to parents.
As a partner in the CCR&R Network, please complete an Annual CCR&R Provider Update in the Provider Portal. This will allow parents to continue to receive the most accurate information about your services.
