Resource and Referral
CCRC offers parents a Referral Service, which can help them locate and select a child care program that meets their needs. Our database contains information on over 1,000 programs in Tulsa, Creek, Rogers and Wagoner counties. We have information on child care centers, family child care homes, pre-schools, before and after school programs, mother’s day outs and nanny services. Call us at 918-834-2273, ext. 1, or use our online referral form for referrals to licensed, permitted or legally exempt child care programs.
We give referrals, not recommendations. The information we supply is to aid you in your search. The service we provide is a free and confidential service to help our communities and their families find child care.
A checklist has been developed to use when visiting child care facilities. This is a way to compare, know what questions to ask, and write down observations from each place.
Referral Line Hours:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday - 8:30am to 5:00pm
Thursday - 12:00pm to 5:00pm
We offer an online referral form. Use this form to submit information about your child care needs. We will email or fax your referrals back to you within 24 hours.
