Child Care Resource and Referral
Point of Entry activities

ALPI Child Care Resource and Referral is the point of entry for all families looking for preschool programs. Families call CCR&R utilizing a local or toll free telephone to request child care services. Parent Counselors educate families on available programs in their county. An intake form is completed to pre-qualify the child for preschool programs.

Single Point of Entry partners include Pre-K, Head Start, and Subsidized Child Care. The single entry process has eliminated, for the most part, duplication of service to families and allowed additional children to be placed in care. Enrollments are placed from the CCR&R waiting list.

The Single Point of Entry process has been operating successfully for almost six years. We continuously communicate with the partners on various issues to improve the process as we go along. The system has made the process of applying for public funded programs "family friendly". Families can get the information they need all in one telephone call. The program handled more than 7,500 single entry phone calls per year. The single entry system has helped to increase the awareness of the program in the community, and in turn, has increased awareness of the importance of quality child care.

ALPI-CCRR is part of the statewide Child Care Resource and Referral Network now funded via the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee Counties, Inc. The CCR&R is administered by the Early Learning Coalition. Local R&R's offer free information and referral services to all families seeking quality early care and school readiness programs and out of school time solutions. R&R's also assist in the recruitment, startup and support of providers and promote quality, availability and affordability of services available in their communities. The CCR&R Network maintains the only comprehensive statewide database of child care, school readiness and school age programs and service providers.
