WEIU has engaged in a collaborative effort with Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) to provide training and resources for teachers, parents and child care providers to extend the learning power of the children's programming we broadcast. Our services include:

  • Community-based projects such as child care provider literacy visits.
  • Health and literacy outreach.
  • Book and literacy kit distribution programs, events, and more.

CCR&R is part of the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies and is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services.
