"Who's watching the kids?"
Everyday working families are faced with these questions - Who is going to watch my baby? Who will nurture and keep her safe? How will I find someone? The Oklahoma Child Care Resource & Referral Association works daily to answer these and many other questions parents may have when searching for care.
In Oklahoma more than 120,000 children are in some form of licensed child care.
Over 430,000 children (0-12) need some form of care each day while their parent(s) work or go to school.
With YOUR help we can:
Give FREE referrals to families.
We offer a tailored search for licensed child care providers in your neighborhood. We helped 3,026 children find care (FY16).
Train and Assist child care providers.
We offered 1,368 hours of certified training and provided 885 hours of Technical Assistance to aid child care providers with activities, ideas, health and safety and business advice.
We offer support and best practice on how to provide a quality, early learning environment. We had over 7,700 participants take advantage of OCCRRA's FREE trainings last year.
Make the Case.
OCCRRA advocates for a child care system that serves all of Oklahoma's children. With up to date data and reports we are able to
inform policy makers and community leaders on what child care looks like in their community.
Your donation makes a difference in the life of a child, their family and the care provider.
