The Child Care & Development Council is dedicated to promoting and supporting the development of quality, affordable and accessible child care services in Oswego County. To accomplish this mission we offer FREE services for child care providers, individuals interested in opening a child care program, and families searching for child care.

The Council's Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) program provides services for parents, businesses and child care providers. Our motto is "Your Local Resource As They Grow", and we strive to provide the best service to our community possible. When a parent calls looking for a child care provider, our Referral Specialist will give him/her the utmost attention by asking detailed questions about their child care needs - what town, school district, age of child, special needs, even dietary concerns. Our goal is to give providers as close a match to their request as possible and as many choices as available. Tips on interviewing providers and background information, programming, as well as any violation history can be given at this time - or the parent may prefer to interview some providers and get back to us (see Referral Request form on the left).
Businesses can be assured that when they refer employees to us for their child needs we will act in a professional and caring manner. We understand how child care issues can affect the workplace! Please see the Business survey on the left - print and fill out and mail or fax it to us 315 343 0442 it to us to give us feedback on how we can serve your employees better!
