Child Care Resource & Referral

Child Care Resource and Referral serves as the primary source for parents, child care providers, businesses and the community to obtain information on child care programs that best meet their needs. Information is provided on identifying specific child care needs, choosing quality child care, training, and other options for selecting early childhood education programs.

Resource and Referral offers an array of support for children and families with regard to all programs in the agency. Referral services include; counseling, transportation, educational, food, clothing, housing, legal, parenting classes and social services. To assist parents in determining their needs, a Family Needs Assessment is completed by a counselor with the parent.

The Resource and Referral Department maintains a complete and up-to-date database of Child Care Centers and Family Child Care Homes throughout Brevard County. By carefully selecting a quality child care or early childhood education program, you are choosing the type of program which is most likely to support your child's positive growth and development. Child Care Resource and Referral counselors can help you find a program to accommodate your family's needs and will also help you to determine if you are eligible for assistance in paying for child care.
