Founded in January 1991, Child Care Resource & Referral serves Will, Grundy, Kendall and Kankakee counties as part of the Illinois Statewide CCR&R System of IDHS. CCR&R is a not-for-profit agency providing child care information and services to families, child care providers and employers.
Sharing Services to Make High Quality Child Care Affordable
To address the challenges met by local Early Care and Education Programs, Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) has begun to explore a new business model of shared resources. This initiative is made possible by a generous grant from the Grand Victoria Foundation.
By sharing material and human resources, child care programs can potentially cut costs while improving the quality of educational services to children and their families. CCR&R hopes to develop a model for a Shared Services Alliance for child care programs in Will and Kendall Counties by late 2014.
