Child Care Solutions works with licensed centers, registered ministries, and licensed child care homes, offering a full range of assistance.
The Indiana Child Care Fund recently decided to distribute math and science kits for preschoolers through Child Care Solutions and other CCR&R agencies across the state of Indiana. These kits are filled with early learning materials centering on various mathematics or science themes, such as sounds, vegetable gardens, patterning, sorting, and shapes.
If you are a licensed center, registered ministry, licensed home, or Certified Unlicensed Child Care Development Fund Provider, you qualify for our free referral service. Parents in your area will hear about your program if you meet their needs.
Child care resource and referral agencies have been directed by Office of Early Childhood and Out of School Learning to focus their face to face efforts on state or federally mandated training’s only in an effort to ensure that providers are able to maintain the health and safety requirements to the best of their ability. Please continue to access Training Central and Indiana Learning Paths for Indiana’s online training opportunities. Online supplemental training resources are available nationally some options can be found in the document below.

House Enrolled Act 1073
HEA 1073 requires all licensed child care centers, licensed child care homes, and legally licensed exempt home providers that are eligible to participate in the CCDF program to provide documentation that their program is legally allowed to operate as a business in the county, city, or town in which the program is located.
In order to meet this requirement, the Office of Early Childhood and Out of School Learning is asking that, at initial application or at the time the licensed is to be renewed, either: 1) a business permit or license be provided to the OECOSL to provide proof that the program has a valid business permit or license; or 2) a signed statement from the county, city, or town stating that a business permit or license is not required for their program to operate be submitted. This list is to be used as a resource for early childhood programs, however, each local Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) agency is serving as a resource as well. Programs are encouraged to contact their local CCRR for additional resource information. If you need help contacting your local CCR&R please check at:
