About the Council

Our Vision

A world where all children are understood.

The Capital District Child Care Council is dedicated to providing resources to the community in order to improve the availability and quality of child care and to assist families in finding child care. As the local child care resource and referral agency (CCR&R) for New York’s Capital Region since 1989, the Council provides these resources to Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Rensselaer counties.

The Capital District Child Care Council is dedicated to promoting quality early care and education in the region and to helping others recognize that an investment in the education of our youngest children is an investment in our future.

The Capital District Child Care Council is Child Care Aware Quality Assured and meets the New York Standards of Excellence for Best Practices.
