Child Care Resource & Referral
Child Care Resource and Referral organizations help parents take the guesswork out of choosing quality child care – giving them referrals to local child care providers, information on state licensing requirements, availability of child care subsidies, and other pertinent information. CCR&R's provide referrals by phone, mail, in person, and in other ways that are tailored to each individual family.
Through workshops, telephone assistance, a Resource Library, and newsletters, CCR&R reaches out to parents with trusted, local information that enables them to make informed choices about all aspects of care for their children. For information and referrals for local child care, call SB6 CCR&R at 803-733-5449 or 1-866-892-9211.
CCR&R's provide ongoing professional development opportunities to child care providers and staff. By supporting accreditation programs, helping create incentives for education and training, offering a resource library, providing quality enhancement grants, and advocating for better compensation for providers, CCR&R's improve the quality of care for all children.
CCR&R's provide an entry to the child care field, helping providers meet licensing requirements and become informed on health and safety, business practices, and child development. CCR&R's also work with local and state governments and the business community to leverage resources for building the supply of quality child care and creating family friendly environments.
