Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning

Child Care Resource & Referral System

For years, Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (Bright from the Start) 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 and help Bright from the Start fulfill our vision of increasing "the number of Georgia's children and families who have access to quality early care and learning programs.


CCR&R serves as a resource for parents by assisting them with finding quality child care and for child care provider through training, technical assistance, national accreditation services, inclusion services, and more. Accreditation facilitation services are provided free of charge to child care learning centers, family child care learning homes, and school-age care programs. This service includes site visits to assess the program's readiness to participate; assistance to help each program develop an improvement plan; on-site technical assistance; and coaching to help program staff develop skills to achieve and sustain program improvement goals.
