Important announcement for anyone
receiving child care payments

The Federal Government is now requiring that providers complete specific health, safety and child development training have current CPR/First Aid certification, and complete annual training hours.

Please help us spread the word.

Check with your child care provider now to make sure they know about the new requirements to continue receiving payments from the Child Care Assistance Program.



We are here to assist you. Please ask us for more information.

CCR&R offers a free online child care referral service.
