With the vision of being a network of support to make Alleghany County a better community for EVERY child, the Alleghany County Partnership for Children’s Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) provides support services throughout the county.

Balancing work and family is often one of the most difficult things for parents. Along with being a working parent, comes the important choice in choosing who will provide care for your child. CCR&R will fill you in on the Star Rated License system, tell you what to look for in a quality program and send you information that you will find useful in your search.

Who can you trust to provide a quality, early learning environment where your child can thrive? What are the licensing requirements in NC? What do you look for when making your selection? Let us assist you in making that decision.


  • CCR&R can help you make an educated decision. We will inform you of your options and provide you with the information to make an educated, informed choice that fits your needs. It is important to know that anyone in North Carolina providing care for more than two children that are not related to them on a full-time basis OR operating more than 20hrs per week is REQUIRED to have a license. Each licensed provider should have a copy of their license posted in their center/home with their license ID number visible. If someone is operating a childcare program outside these guidelines, they are breaking the law. Call our CCR&R program at (336) 372-2846 and talk to us about your needs.
  • The Regional CCR&R educates and refers parents to a range of child care options 
  • CCR&R consults with new and existing businesses about the child care needs of their employees, establishing a link between economic growth and affordable, quality child care 
  • Training Opportunities – CCR&R provides training for parents and teachers on a variety of topics related to child development and appropriate early childhood practices. Because healthy emotional and social development is critical to learning and development in all other areas, CCR&R provides enhanced trainings in a wide array of topics. For more information on trainings, please call our office at (336) 372-2846 

Please keep in mind, we make referrals not recommendations.
