CCRR is designed to be a community resource for parents, child care professionals, businesses and local communities.
The agency's goal is to provide parents with the support and guidelines they need to make wise, appropriate choices in selecting care for their children.
Parent counselors provide information on the types of licensed and unlicensed services available, the cost of child care, a list of names to contact, and also what to look for when visiting a program.
The Carecheck Registry is a voluntary registry whose members have no abuse or neglect records with the North Dakota Department of Human Resources and no criminal history with the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the FBI. This agency is a reference source of potential child care providers. Call (800) 245-3736 and ask for the Carecheck Registry.
Because good quality child care can be costly, your county social service agency may also be able to determine if you qualify for child care assistance.
CCRR also has services to help child care providers. Books and videos are available through CCRR's Resource Lending Library for providers with questions about working with children, parents or any difficult situation. CCRR also helps providers set up their own program and deal with the business side of child care.
The CCRR Equipment Lending Library has cribs, high chairs and play equipment for providers to use in their child care program.
For more information about child care, call CCRR for a copy of A Parent's Guide to Selecting Child Care.
