Childcare Resources’ Resource and Referral Program is a free service that guides families through the process of locating quality child care. Finding child care can be difficult, especially in central Alabama where there are nearly 500 child care programs.

Childcare Resources’ Supplemental Child Care Program (SCCP) assists eligible parents with paying for the cost of child care. Based on a sliding scale related to family size and income, parents pay a portion of the cost of care, and Childcare Resources pays a portion.

Parents can choose from any legally operating child care provider willing to accept payment from Childcare Resources. Providers must register with Childcare Resources before they can begin receiving payment. Apply online today at
