Got daycare? Need child care?
Our Childcare Directory Can Help You!
Welcome Parents and Child Care Providers
ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR CHILD CARE?
If you said, "YES," then you will be in need of a Childcare Directory. As a parent, it is very likely that you will be looking for some type of child care or daycare for your child during their infant, toddler, preschool, or school-age years. Whether you are looking for full-time or part-time care, the biggest decision will ultimately be deciding which type of environment is best for your child and meets your family's needs.
Are you looking for a nanny or au pair to stay with your child in the comforts of your own home? Or, are you wanting to find a reliable, trustworthy in-home child care provider that provides care services in their own home with other children present? Another choice could possibly be a daycare facility that offers more extensive learning programs and longer hours. You may be in need of a mother's day out program that offers flexible hours through a local church. Does your school-age child need after school care for just a few hours each day of the school week?
Other types of care that many parents search for are sick care for children that are too sick to attend school, but are unable to have parents stay home to take care of them.
Some parents have special needs children who are looking for child care providers that will be able to handle the needs of the child while the parents try to accomplish basic tasks such as running to the grocery store or doctor's appointments. Many parents travel for their jobs and will occasionally need overnight care for their children.
First, determine what type of child care you are looking for whether it is a nanny, in-home child care provider, or daycare facility. After determining what type of care you are looking for, the next step is to begin your search.
Finding any type of child care for any of the above situations can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. Our online childcare directory will help you minimize the amount of time you will spend searching for child care. You can simply enter your zip code and find information about available providers in your area.
Decide which providers may be a good match for your child, then call the child care provider or daycare facility to set-up an interview. Yes, you really do want to interview any potential caregivers. Be sure to have a list of questions prepared ahead of time so you don't forget anything and always ask for references. Once you have narrowed your selection to one or two caregivers, ask for a "trial" date to see if you really have found the best match for your child. If all goes well, GREAT! If it doesn't quite work out, that is ok too. Sometimes, looking for the best solution is not always the quickest solution. Be prepared to invest a little bit of time to find the right child care for your precious little one.
In addition to our childcare directory, we have many useful resources that will provide you with valuable information such as how to interview a potential caregiver, how to access funds to help pay for child care, and general growth and development issues related to children.
