211 is YOUR source for child care referrals
The Early Learning Division will transition referrals from the Child Care Resource and Referrals (CCR&R) in July 2016 to 211Info, a clearinghouse that helps people identify, navigate and connect with the local resources and is now available in all counties in Oregon. Just by dialing 211, the caller is able to receive child care referrals along with local community resources. A data base for updated information, 211info is positioned to serve all segments of the community population.
This transition will help the CCR&Rs ability to expand the professional development system and trainings to best serve Oregon's child care providers so that programs are able to continually improve quality and better serve families and children.
According to the Early Learning Division these changes will more effectively support providers in their professional development, and children and their families making decisions for their needs.
All Child Care Providers will now refer parents to 211info instead of Family Connections of Lane and Douglas Counties to receive local child care referrals.
