Child Care Resource & Referral Services

It is our goal to assist you with locating a quality early education program that meets your family’s needs. Choosing an early care and education provider is one of the most important decisions that families make. It is important to choose a provider who meets the needs of your child and with whom you feel comfortable. We do not license, endorse, or recommend any particular provider.

Each family’s situation and each child are unique; therefore, only you can best determine which program is right for you and your child. Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) is a free information and referral service provided by the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast. Our database includes all legally operating early learning providers (those that have met all state and local licensing or registration requirements) in Citrus, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy, and Sumter Counties.

Families receive free information on finding and selecting quality early learning programs that best meet their needs. Trained staff answer your questions on how to choose the best early learning program for your family. Families are provided with unbiased referrals customized to their individual needs. Referrals and information about other services available in the community are available. Information on financial assistance options is also available.

CCR&R makes referrals only, not recommendations.

To receive further information, please contact your local Coalition office.
