Scholarships & Individual Consultation

At the foundation of every quality early childhood setting are the skilled and knowledgeable professionals dedicated to making a difference in the lives of young children. To maintain their standard of excellence, professionals must be able to embrace change, implement new ideas and participate in ongoing training and professional development. Child Care Resource and Referral is here to help you along your professional path.

Scholarships offered through CCR&R are available to assist early childhood professionals in attending trainings and conferences and assist with credential fees. Priority will be given to individuals working in programs with 25% or more of the enrollment consisting of publicly funded children. Most payments are made on a reimbursement basis.
