Handbooks & Forms

The Office of Child Care has a host of helpful handbooks and forms for child care providers after they apply to operate in Rhode Island. Some are resources related to licensing while others are specific for providers who serve children enrolled in our Starting RIght Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). The CCAP-specific resources below are in additional to the financial information found here.  

Consumer Website Provider Portal 

The CCAP Provider Portal described on this page allows providers enroll a child and submit attendance electronically. This Consumer Website Provider Portal gives providers access through an administrative log in to do the following:    

  • Update public-facing information about their specific program with as much or as little information that they want posted.
  • Complete the Universal Application without having to print and mail the application once completed.
  • Submit changes to their COVID-19 control plan
