Child Care Resource Service

Child Care Resource Service (CCRS), one of the state child care resource and referral agencies, assists parents in locating child care, helps eligible families receive assistance paying for child care, provides technical assistance, training, and resources to current child care providers and those pursuing a career in child care, and maintains the most current data available on child-care supply and demand in East Central Illinois.

CCRS collects information about provider’s experience and/or training caring for special needs children and can use that as a search criteria. Parents who identify their child as needing special care will receive follow-up from CCRS staff to assist with any additional child care needs, technical assistance or referrals.
