Childcare Resources

Partners in Inclusion

The Community Partnerships – Partners In Inclusion program helps children and youth with disabilities succeed in all settings. Partners In Inclusion does not provide one-on-one services to individual children. Instead, we help your child succeed by focusing on the people who work with them daily. If your child is struggling in the child care center you have chosen, or you’ve had to switch child care, after-school, or summer camps because no one “gets” your child – we can help. If you are a childcare or recreational provider struggling to support the needs of a child with a disability – we can help.

CCSA – Child Care Referral Central (CCRC)

CCSA helps families with child care needs through a service called Child Care Referral Central (CCRC). Child Care Referral Specialists help take the guesswork out of choosing care by providing referrals to local programs, information on the NC Star Rated licensing system, and information on where to get help paying for child care. Child Care Referral Central is a regional collaborative between CCSA and the Alamance, Caswell, Person, and Franklin-Granville-Vance Partnerships for Children. Child Care Referral Central makes finding child care in the nine-county area of Alamance, Caswell, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Orange, Person, Vance, and Wake counties easy and central for families.

NCDHHS – Division of Child Development

North Carolina’s Division of Child Development uses a combination of state and federal funds to provide subsidized child care services to eligible families through a locally administered state-supervised voucher system. Annually each county receives a combination of state and federal funding from the Division of Child Development for subsidized child care services. The amount of funding allocated to each county is determined by legislation. If a family meets the eligibility criteria, the state of North Carolina pays a portion of the cost of child care. Parents are free to choose a child care arrangement that best fits their needs as long as the provider chosen participates in the Subsidized Child Care Program.
