Children’s healthy development depends on safe and positive experiences when they are very young.
You may choose to have a caregiver come to your home, send your child to a caregiver’s home, or send your child to a child care center. It’s important to find the best solution for you and your family.
The following public resources provide information on selecting a child care provider and finding programs in your area:
The Office of Child Care supports low-income working families through child care financial assistance and promotes children’s learning by improving the quality of early care and education and after-school programs.
Head Start promotes school readiness of children under five from low-income families through education, health, social, and other services. You can find a Head Start program in your area.
