About us

Research shows that quality early care and learning helps children have better education, health, social, and economic outcomes in life. Not only do the years before kindergarten lay the building blocks for success throughout life, but a child’s early years also create the foundation for strong communities for all of us.

Child Care Resources works with families, child care providers, community organizations and advocacy groups in order to improve the quality of early childhood care in our region. We support families in their search for child care, assist families experiencing homelessness with child care costs, coach and provide resources for child care professionals, and train and empower low-income and refugee women pursuing careers in early learning. Learn more about our specific programs here.

Child Care Resources believes that investing in children—all children—leads to a better future. That’s why our vision is that every child has a great start in school and in life.


CCR & Racial Equity

The Board and staff of Child Care Resources have a strong commitment to engaging with families, communities and both licensed and informal caregivers so that every child has a great start in school and life. To support that vision, we have developed a Racial Equity Support Structure
