Incorporated in 1993 and 1989 respectively, the two agencies worked independently until 2010 when the child care referral
program was regionalized throughout the state and CCR&RCW began processing referrals for all ten counties.
In 2012, the two boards and staff met regularly, started planning for a strategic merger and voted to finalize the merger as of 12/31/13.
Along with the new name, Childcaring, Inc. has a new agency mission and logo. The new agency logo is symbolic of the mission of Childcaring’s dedication and outreach to enhance early care.
