BRIGHT FROM THE START
For years, Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning has been privileged to support the work of the child care resource and referral (CCR&R) agencies in Georgia. The CCR&Rs provide an invaluable network of support for parents and early care and education professionals at the local level. They support the Bright from the Start vision of increasing the number of Georgia's children and families who have access to quality early care and education programs.
CCR&Rs support quality early learning by supporting child care programs that are working towards a Quality Rated star rating. Child care programs who achieve a Quality Rated star rating have been evaluated by credentialed early childhood experts and identified as high-quality through a one, two, or three star rating system. Through targeted coaching, training, and technical assistance, CCRRs help programs achieve their star rating by providing higher quality child care environments and better child/teacher interactions.
CCR&Rs are a core component of the Quality Rated system. Their services are available to programs that are working to achieve a Quality Rated star rating. CCR&R agencies cover every county in the state to effectively support each and every child care program.
Child Care Resource & Referral of Southeast Georgia (CCR&R) uses a team approach to help families, early child care educational professionals, and community members to help facilitate safe, high quality, learning environments. On-site, technical assistance is provided to child care programs participating in Quality Rated. We also provide state approved trainings and professional development opportunities for child care providers throughout the 40 county region.
