Child Care Answers
Child Care Answers serves as Central Indiana’s Child Care Resource & Referral agency, otherwise known as a CCR&R. CCR&Rs work to ensure that children receive the best care possible through a variety of activities.
"Child Care Answers means education, professionalism and mentoring to me. As a professional, I have found Child Care Answers to be a place of guidance, information and resources. The workshops offer opportunities to meet with other early childhood professionals while learning about the latest and greatest trends in early childhood in a safe and friendly environment. As a parent, I have greatly appreciated being able to find quality child care and have enjoyed the discussions shared with the specialists and coaches. I am a better educator and parent because of Child Care Answers."
- Ashley Flaumenhaft, Early Childhood Educator
About Our Organization
Child Care Answers began as a program of the Day Nursery Association in September 1985. At the time, families seeking help locating and evaluating child care could call and receive information tailored to their needs about providers. Today, families can also get referrals both over the phone and online. In 1985, we also provided support and training for family child care home providers – we’ve expanded our reach to include professionals in child care centers, unlicensed registered ministries, and those interested in starting their own child care business.
Our staff brings years of experience in the early childhood education field, as well as a wealth of knowledge and credentials. They are active in our community and are constantly learning from others in their field. But most importantly – they bring passion to their work with families, child care professionals, child care advocates, and the children of Central Indiana.
Child Care Answers is honored to enjoy support from some of Central Indiana’s most generous and visionary organizations, working on behalf of Indiana’s children and families.
