For Parents & Guardians

We’re here to help you understand your child care options so you find a safe, healthy, quality early childhood education provider.


If you’re looking for child care, we’ll help you find programs that meet your specific circumstances.


A good match is essential. The provider that’s right for one family may not be right for another. Many factors can influence your decision. Your personal values, culture, your child’s developmental stage, special needs, and provider location are just a few considerations.


If you’re looking for info on financial assistance, we’ll help you determine your eligibility and, if you qualify, we’ll assist with navigating the complex child care subsidy system.
