Training and resources for child care professionals and families

This project is funded through a grant with the TN Department of Human Services and Signal Centers, Inc.

We aim to give every TN child care professional what they need to thrive

Our purpose

The Tennessee Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) works to ensure Tennessee families, educators, and care providers are “equipped with everything needed to provide the children under their care the best possible start in life.”
CCR&R serves Tennessee through sites across the state
that provide administrative, technical, business, and developmental coaching and training for child care operators and professionals while also supporting families with resources that ensure children prosper. Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) funds CCR&R as an investment in our state’s future.
