Online Child Care Search

Child Care Referral Policy:  We believe that parents are best able to evaluate and select the right child care for their children. We do not recommend any specific provider; we only provide the parent with a list of providers randomly selected from our computerized referral database. Parents are urged to visit any child care facility they may be considering and make their decision carefully.  We serve providers and parents in our area on a non-discriminatory basis, regardless of income, race, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability. All information received is kept confidential.

Our Child Care Checklist is a great guide for you to use when screening and interviewing child care providers.  It contains questions regarding health & safety, nutrition, learning, communication, discipline and more. Click below to dowload this checklist. 

Note: As a parent, you have the right to get information about any substantiated or inconclusive complaints about a child care provider that you select for your child. That information is public and you can get it by calling the local licensing office. The telephone number for the Department of Social Services Community Care Licensing is  (424) 301-3077.

We will provide you with a randomly-generated list of licensed child care providers based on the specific information you provide.
