Child Care Referrals

We believe all parents and guardians should have equal access to information regarding available child care services. This is why we provide a child care referral list of licensed child care program providers to use when searching for child care. This information is provided free of charge. However, the information we provide is not meant to be a recommendation. We only provide parents and guardians with the information–it’s up to them to make their own decisions. We cannot guarantee or vouch for the quality of any provider or program included on a child care referral list. We urge all parents and guardians to look into each program and find one that fits their unique needs.

Child Care Initiative Project

The Child Care Initiative Project (CCIP) is a training program to assist aspiring home-based child care providers improve the quality of care they offer. The CCIP training series provides help with the licensing process, tips for getting started, home visits, pre-license inspections, and customized 1:1 support. The program also offers learning opportunities and workshops on topics ranging from business practices to healthy and safety and more. CCIP training is available to anyone interested in family child care licensing. Providers who currently offer home-based child care (licensed or not), or anyone interested in starting one, is encouraged to learn more.
