Local Child Care Referral Agencies

Many communities around the country have free or low cost services which can help you locate child care centers or child care home providers. Child Care Aware is an organization that can provide you with information about child care providers in your area.

The organizations offered by Child Care Aware vary considerably. Some of the organizations provide only a list of licensed child care centers and child care providers who seem most able to meet those needs. (Keep in mind, however, that resource and referral agencies do not recommend child care centers or homes.) Some organizations are equipped to provide information about vacancies and waiting lists. Some provide written materials that can help parents in choosing care for their children.

The information given to you by Child Care Aware is not intended to be a complete listing of all child care referral agencies in each area, and inclusion does not constitute an endorsement by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
