Mission
The Child Care Resource Network is a community based service creating links between the diverse elements of the child care system. Our primary objectives are to help families find quality child care; to sponsor, recruit and train child care providers; and to develop unique child care resource and referral programs for employers of working parents.
Program Description
The Child Care Resource Network is one of eleven Resource and Referral agencies in the state that educates families about choosing quality child care. They also work with child care providers to improve the quality of care they provide through mentoring, technical assistance,and professional development opportunities. In addition, they are able to provide the community with information such as the number of different facilities providing care, costs for different ages, openings etc.

The Child Care Resource Network provides resources and services to families, child care providers, and the community. Our core service is to provide families with child care referrals and education regarding child care quality. Families of infants or toddlers can receive enhanced referral services through the Better Baby Care Indiana program. An enhanced referral involves contacting eligible child care providers to check for vacancies. Call 765-742-7105 for more information.

Families of children with special needs can receive enhanced referral services through our Indiana Partnership for Inclusive Child Care program.  Contact Jessica Taylor at 765-742-7105.

The Child Care Resource Network also partners with many other agencies in each of the 12 counties (Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Jasper, Newton, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White) that we serve. These community partnerships ensure coordination of services and exchange of ideas on ways to make our services more accessible and more effective.
