Play Visits for Licensed Family Child Care and Registered License-Not-Required Child Care -

Would you like a CCRR Consultant to come to your child care, bring along a resource box, visit and play with you and your children? Our Consultants will unpack a resource box with you, explore the toys and materials included and show you creative ways to use the items with the children in your care. At the end of the visit keep the resources for a month and continue the fun!
