Child Care Resource and Referral provides data to individuals or organizations interested in providing services to child care professionals and families. Data is also provided to community planners and policy makers to aid in their knowledge and understanding of child care and early education. We release data only in a form that respects the privacy of child care providers and families. Southern Illinois County Child Care Profiles and Census Facts sheets for each county are available on our website free of charge. Any data request that includes areas outside of the southern fifteen counties in Illinois should be directed to the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA).
CCR&R's available data includes:
- Types of care parents are searching for and problems they experience finding care.
- Child care programs in Cook County, including program capacity, rates charged and ages served.
- The number of families and children using Illinois Child Care Assistance.
- Mailing labels for providers listed on our referral database. Labels are not available for the purpose of solicitation. Please enclose a copy of materials being sent to providers with your Data Request Form.
CCR&R reserves the right to deny any requests. Our databases are confidential and individual names or addresses will not be released.
