Resource & Referral


Resource & 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 800 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 1-800-438-0008, 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.
