Mission Statement:

"Our association is committed to raising the standards for registered in-home providers through educational opportunities."

“Happy and secure children are ready to take on the next stage of life.”

We are a group of State Registered child care professionals located in and around Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We are a community resource for parents and guardians who are seeking quality child care. We offer our members six trainings per calendar year that assist providers with maintaining their Department of Human Services required 12 training hours.

Our trainings are held in the months of January, February, March, August, September, October and are held at the Shores Event Center 700 16th Street Northeast L100 Cedar Rapids Iowa 52402. The training location is in the lower level of the building. You must enter on the main level.


Trainings are 2 hours in length and start at 6:30pm and last until 8:30pm pm on the 2nd Monday during the months designated above. You must register for trainings via the DHS training portal for non members. Members can contact Becca English at TrainingenrollmentCRFHCCA@gmail.com to register for the training. For instructions on how to set up a DHS training portal account contact CCR&R at 563-324-3236.

The Topics are based on the CDA content areas, which are important to child care professionals, and are approved by the Iowa Department of Human Services. Each participant recieves a certificate upon the completion of training.
