Resource and Referral agencies and programs (R&Rs), funded by the California Department of Education, Early Education and Support Division, are located in every county in the state. They help families find child care that best meets their needs, recruit and train child care providers, and collect data from parents and child care providers. R&Rs provide a variety of services to parents seeking care, to providers seeking professional development and incentives for remaining in the profession, and to communities seeking support for their youngest residents.
Certain counties have multiple R&Rs that cover specific regions by zip code. Those agencies have their regional zip codes listed along with their contact information. Select a county from the map at the link below, or choose from the list of counties in alphabetical order.
