Parent Referral Services

The East CCR&R supports local parents through educational and referral services.  Using NACCRRAware, a database provided by the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies and the TN DHS, the CCR&R staff can assist parents in finding child care that meets their family’s specific needs.   Using a parent’s criteria, a search for matching child care is conducted and a one-page report is created for each matching agency.  Referral reports are typically completed in 3-4 business days and can be emailed, mailed, or faxed to parents.

Please call our office to request child care referrals.
