To find a child care resource and referral office in your area, contact your early learning coalition or call (toll-free) 1-866-357-3239.

If you have a question about how to identify quality child care and early education programs or how to locate a provider who meets your family’s needs, you can find answers through a statewide network of child care resource and referral services.
  
The state Child Care Resource and Referral Network provides information about state-funded early learning programs, such as School Readiness, VPK, Head Start, Early Head Start, Migrant and Seasonal Head Start and Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters. Local resource and referral offices have information about creative financial assistance options and community resources that may help with other needs.

To find a child care resource and referral program in another state, call Child Care Aware at 1-800-424-2426 toll-free or visit www.childcareaware.org.
