Child Care Resources and Referral
The Child Care Resource and Referral Program is a free service that provides assistance to families in finding child care programs and community resources to meet their individual needs. While the Coalition does not make recommendations regarding individual child care programs, we want you to make an informed decision regarding where you place your child.
For Child Care Resource and Referral Services or for more information, please call (850) 983-5313. Someone will be available to help you Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m until 12:00 p.m. or CLICK HERE for an online referral form.
