About

Promoting affordable, quality child care through research, education, policy, and advocacy

The California Child Care Resource & Referral Network (Network) is a non-profit membership organization of 58 local child care resource and referral agencies (R&R). For almost four decades, we have been a leader in:

  • understanding the demographics of the state,
  • developing innovative partnerships with business and government, and
  • helping our members respond to changing economic, social, and family needs.

Along with our members, we raise a public voice for unmet child care needs at the local and state level. The Network has a unique and powerful role of listening to the varied needs of local communities and connecting this to policy advocacy. We partner with families, child care providers, members, and community leaders to ensure all children have the opportunity to learn and grow.
