Building Excellence in Child Care

The CCR&R is dedicated to serving the child care community through information and referrals, training, advocacy, and education. CCR&R's goal is to be the primary resource for the child care community and to assume a leadership role in supporting children, families, child care providers, employers and the public to ensure that quality child care takes its place as an integral part of society.

Each year the CCR&R collects data on the services provided by the CCR&R and other child care specific data in Delaware County and provides an annual report on child care in the community. 2020 Annual Report
