How do I find child care?

Finding the right child care provider isn’t an easy task, nor should it be. Even if you have a hundred viable options at your fingertips, the decision of where to place your child should never be one made without careful consideration.

  • Step 1: Take your time. Placing your child into someone else’s care will be one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make for your child, so it should never be rushed.
  • Step 2: Word of mouth. Talk to other parents like yourself. If a specific comment, whether positive or negative, is on the lips of every person you meet and talk to, it probably deserves your attention.
  • Step 3: Find your state’s child care resource and referral agency. Doing so will get you in touch with agencies that have been evaluated, and are regulated, by the state.
