Oregon Child Care Research Partnership

Oregon Child Care Research Partnership
The Child Care Division is responsible for ensuring accountability for state and federal investments in child care.  To support accountability and the application of research-based practices in child care, the Child Care Division led in the creation of the Oregon Child Care Research Partnership (OCCRP) in 1989. The OCCRP is a collaboration of state child care administrative staff, university and private research centers and researchers, as well as child care advocates and practitioners.
 
The OCCRP seeks to advance and share knowledge about child care policies and programs and their impacts on children, families, and child care providers. The OCCRP is committed to creation and implementation of a statewide, comprehensive performance measurement system that appropriately utilizes a shared set of measures and systematically shares information with child care policy makers, researchers, practitioners and consumers.
