Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R)

Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) is the front door to early learning services. This service connects families to valuable community resources including programs for assistance with child care, shelter and other basic needs.
  • CCR&R Specialists are trained to know what services are available in the area and can provide information about quality childcare programs that best meet a family’s needs. A CCR&R specialist can also offer parents referrals to child care providers that may be willing to offer reduced fees, scholarships, sibling discounts or negotiated rates. In addition to identifying the changing needs of families, the CCR&R team helps child care providers stay current on licensing and other pertinent topics.
  • CCR&R services are free to anyone residing in or seeking early learning services in Florida. To ensure parents are aware of their child care options, the CCR&R office maintains a database of all legally operating child care providers in St. Lucie County. The database contains providers that are licensed, license-exempt, faith-based, registered family child care homes and non-traditional child care centers.
