High Quality Child Care

At Child Care Answers, we’ve made finding and searching for quality child care, preschool, and school-age care easier than ever.

We offer free referral services for families looking for early childhood or school-age programs. We update our statewide provider database every six months, contacting every provider to ensure we reflect changes in their programs, rates, services or hours.

FOR EMPLOYERS

Employees who struggle with finding consistent and affordable quality child care can affect an entire organization. Chronic absenteeism, lower productivity and high turnover are just a few of the consequences that employers see as a result. So, what can you as an employer do to help?

This is where Child Care Answers comes in. We offer a variety of services to educate your business leaders and your employees about improving the quality and availability of child care, including:

  • Consultation on employee-friendly work-life policies
  • How to establish or manage a subsidy program to help your employees pay for child care
  • Considerations for starting onsite child care
  • Onsite presentations and information sharing for your employees, through brown bags or benefit fair booths
  • Enhanced referrals that provide one-on-one consultation with your employees needing child care

FOR SOCIAL SERVICES AND OTHER AGENCIES

As a social services partner, the families we hope to help are often the families that you hope to help. Working together, we can connect those we serve and learn more about amplifying one another’s services. We can help in a number of ways.

  • Onsite referrals – Our outreach specialists can work with families who need help finding quality child care. If you have an event or group you feel would benefit from our services, please let us know!
  • Community fairs – We would like to participate in your next event! Through a Child Care Answers booth, we can answer questions, provide child care referrals or distribute brochures describing our services.
  • Local coalitions and community groups – If your local community group would benefit from our expertise and though partnership, we would love to participate!
