Child Care Resources and Referral

PACE Child Care Works is a full-service child care resource and referral program dedicated to helping families find quality child care.

We work with parents, schools, daycare facilities, and local agencies. Our job is to assist families in finding the best child care and early childhood education options for them.

We provide parents with child care referrals and information on evaluating quality childcare, plus resources on various parenting subjects. We also offer childcare providers access to valuable training and support services for new or established programs.

In addition, we find ways for parents to pay for child care services including the voucher program.

Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&Rs) receive funding from the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) to make it possible for families to have access to high-quality information, resources, and referrals to meet their childcare needs. CCR&Rs educate families on the cost, quality, and availability of early education and out-of-school-time care, and provide eligible families with access to subsidized Child Care Vouchers. CCR&Rs employ experienced and highly trained staff who are able to provide services to families in multiple languages.
