The Child Care Resource Center works diligently to bring our knowledge of the needs of the children and families served in our communities to decision makers at the local, state and federal government.
It is important to be engaged and aware of the policy decisions being made by elected officials and state agencies. To learn more about issues that may affect parents, child care providers and the community please see the following:
Current and Emerging Child Care Issues
The California Child Care Resource & Referral Network's goal is to promote quality child care options for every family and community throughout California. The Network monitors state and federal policy issues, coordinates with its member agencies to determine local and statewide child care needs, and develops an annual policy agenda that addresses current and emerging issues that impact families, providers, and children. CCRC works collaboratively with our colleagues across the state through the California Resource & Referral Network to address state policy issues. Click below to see what's happening.
