Find High-quality Child Care


Finding a local child care program can be challenging. There are dozens of local programs, but which one is best for your family? What does 'high-quality' mean in child care? Who can help you feel confident in your child care decision?

At ELRC Region 5, ACDHS and our partners at The Alliance for Infants and Toddlers and Trying Together want to make the task of finding high-quality child care easier for you. To assist with this, ELRC Region 5 has curated some printable and online resources. More will be added in the near future.
