|By carefully selecting a quality child
care or preschool 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.
CARE ASSOCIATION'S Resource and Referral Department maintains a complete and up to date
database of Child Care Centers and Family Child Care Homes throughout Brevard County. In
addition to the information available from our Resource and Referral counselors at our
office locations in Norh, Central, and South Brevard County, we also have help available
at the State of Florida job centers. Parents trying to locate Child Care Services in close
proximity to their home can use a Child Care Association computer with a software Program
called "Locate" installed. The parent types in their name and zip code and then
answers a set of simple questions as to the type of service desired. When this is
done, the computer displays the names of the centers or homes that meet the desired
specifications. This display can be printed out for ongoing reference.
This is of special value to a parent who has located work and wants to arrange for
Child Care at the same time, a "One Stop" service. Each location that has one of
these computers also has an on-site representative of Child Care Association of Brevard
County available to help the parent in enrolling their child in one of the chosen centers.
