The NC Child Care Resource and Referral Council (Child Care Resources Inc., Child Care Services Association and Southwestern Child Development Commission) provides management and oversight of the Regional Lead Agencies to ensure the delivery of high quality CCR&R Core Services and access to special initiatives statewide.
The mission of the NC Child Care Resource and Referral Council is to partner with the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (NCDCDEE) and the fourteen NC CCR&R regions to support a strong child care resource and referral statewide system by: 1) providing high quality CCR&R services across the state, and 2) ensuring that families, child care providers and communities have access to high quality CCR&R services. This will in turn ensure that high quality early childhood education programs with highly competent teachers are available for children and their families. The Council partnering agencies, each with a long history of providing quality child care resource and referral services and managing multiple funding streams, represent a diversity of service delivery and system perspectives in that they represent urban, rural and suburban regions of the state.
The vision of the NC CCR&R Council is that North Carolina’s CCR&R system will be nationally recognized as an essential and highly effective statewide deliverer of research-based and data driven services that enable families, practitioners, and communities to recognize, support and access high quality, affordable, child and family-centered early care and education and school-age child care services.
