If you are looking for Child Care you have come to the right place for your Child Care plan.

The Resource and Referral program provides FREE Child Care Referrals to all interested persons in Ventura County. The program is funded by the California Department of Education/Early Learning and Care Division (ELCD).

To help parents make their decision, CDR’s Resource & Referral Specialists provide details on licensing regulations and how to search for quality Child Care programs. CDR provides referrals, not recommendations, because CDR feel that parents are the ones who can best choose child care that meets their family’s needs.

Choosing Child Care is one of the most important decisions families make and it can be difficult to find reliable information about your Child Care options. We help parents take the guesswork out of choosing care by providing:

  • Referrals to local Child Care providers

  • Information on state licensing requirements

  • Information on where to get help paying for Child Care

Our referral services reach parents of all income levels. Our staff works closely with parents to provide them with the contacts and information they need to find and evaluate appropriate Child Care. Our dedicated specialists can help you

  • Understand the logistical, financial and philosophical aspects of Child Care 

  • Assess, identify and clarify your Child Care needs 

  • Get referrals to Child Care providers that best match your needs 

  • Make informed decisions that benefit you and your family

CDR’s Resource & Referral department assists families by phone, in person, online and in other ways that are tailored to each family. In addition to assistance finding Child Care, we also offer parenting workshops, hotlines and newsletters.
