The California Child Care Resource & Referral Network promotes affordable, accessible quality care through research, education, policy, and advocacy.
Available in every county throughout California, resource and referral (R&R) programs offer a wealth of child care information for parents, training for providers, and research and data to assist policymakers.
In order to promote quality child care options throughout California, the Network actively monitors state and federal policy issues, and develops an annual policy agenda.
The California Child Care Resource & Referral Network and its member agencies advocate to address unmet child care needs and to improve access to services for all children.
The Network research team collects, analyzes, and publishes critical data about child care services that enable a better understanding of the child care needs of California families.
The Network's well-developed organizational structure facilitates communication between the Network and its member R&R agencies.
