EIU Child Care Resource and Referral: Funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services, they assist families in Clark, Coles, Cumberland, Edgar, Moultrie, and Shelby counties who are searching for child care, preschool, and school age programs through a database of local legal child care. In addition, EIU Child Care Resource and Referral offers a program to help families that qualify based on size and income, pay for child care. Currently, they’re in search of more child care providers in the six-county area, especially evening and weekend care. If you’re interested, please call 1-800-545-7439. CCR&R helps people through the licensing process and offers many child care trainings on business issues, health and safety, nutrition, and other early childhood topics, and has funds available to help increase the quality of child care.
