Thinking About Starting a Child Care Program?

Family Child Care

Child Care Center

Child care centers provide care in groups based on age and are often in free-standing buildings, businesses, community centers, or places of worship.

Want to Grow your Child Care Program?

If you operate an existing program, you might want to open more locations, increase your licensing capacity, or change your license type. Our Navigators can help you explore your options.


Having a licensed child care program opens the door to resources that support your program and help you grow as an educator. You may be eligible for free or low-cost support.
