We exist to grow healthy children, parents, and the relationship between them.


Our Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) staff is here to help find high-quality early education opportunities that meet each family’s unique needs. CCR&R is a FREE community service that offers information and referral services to all families that are looking to find care for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, before and after care for school-age children and summer camp information in Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, and Washington Counties.

CCR&R also offers supports to potential and current providers. We are available to offer information about starting a new child care business and enhancing your program. We are also eager to assist providers with questions about the VPK and School Readiness programs.
