Welcome to Early Care & Learning Council
The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) is collecting information from licensed and registered child care providers to find out how many children are attending child care as New York reopens. All open and operating child care programs are asked to complete this survey every Wednesday. If you are receiving a CARES2 Child Care Expansion Incentive, completing this form each week will satisfy the enrollment reporting requirement.
New York's CCR&Rs:
Assist families by providing a highly visible, centralized source of information for child care consumers;
Identify sources of financial aid to help families pay for their child care choices;
Improve the quality of available services by providing a broad range of support services to providers, including training, technical assistance, and publicity;
Expand the supply of child care by recruiting and training new providers;
Educate parents about high-quality child care and how to evaluate their child care arrangements on an ongoing basis.
