NY Standards of Excellence

NY State Standards of Excellence (SOE) is our state-specific set of best practice standards for the CCR&Rs.  The NY SOE covers best practice standards in the following categories: Agency Governance; Program Management; Consumer/Parent Services; Provider Services; Community Engagement. To be SOE Certified, a CCR&R needs to be in compliance with at least 80% of the items specified in the NY Standards of Excellence (SOE) document – and have a plan for Achievement of Further
Excellence that has been approved by the Early Care and Learning Council (ECLC). NY Certificate of Excellence is valid for 3 years.  Contact  Abbe Hahn Hook for more information.

Child Care Resource and Referral programs (CCR&Rs) are coordinating and planning agencies for local child care services. They provide support to child care providers, parents, businesses and local governments. 
New York's CCR&Rs:

  • assist families by providing a highly visible, centralized source of information for child care consumers;

  • identify sources of financial aid to help families pay for their child care choices;

  • improve the quality of available services by providing a broad range of support services to providers, including training, technical assistance, and publicity;

  • expand the supply of child care by recruiting and training new providers;

  • educate parents about high-quality child care and how to evaluate their child care arrangements on an ongoing basis.
