Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) Registration and Updates
The Early Learning Coalition of Northwest Florida provides CCR&R services that offer families a FREE customized list of child care providers based on their needs and wants. Child care providers are not recommended to families. Families receive explanations of quality early learning and its benefits as well as the tools needed to make an informed decision.
Contracted providers are required to update their program information via the OEL Provider Portal annually so the correct information can be included in the CCR&R database. It is critical that providers update CCR&R information any time there is a change to their program to ensure families are being given the most accurate information.
Any local child care program can be included in the CCR&R database, even if they choose not to contract with the Coalition. To add your program information to the database, create a profile in the OEL Provider Portal. If you have questions about the provider portal and/or need assistance creating or updating your profile, please send them through the Redline.
Please Note: There are no charges/fees associated with a provider listing in the Child Care Resource & Referral Database or for referrals to your program. If you are asked to provide a payment for a referral or listing in the Child Care Resource & Referral database, please call the Office of Early Learning at 1-866-357-3239. The information reported about a provider’s program is objective program information that is based on standards that are attainable for providers based on their type of care.
