Your child care search

Whether you’re a new parent, recently moved to the area, or wondering what options are available to your family, the first step in your search is to get a list of child care providers in your area.  Once you receive your referral list, it’s time to narrow it down and choose a provider.  Consider a provider’s licensing status, accreditation, financial assistance options, and more, when deciding if a provider will be a good fit for your family.   

Please note…Child Care Aware of Virginia provides referrals to child care and information about child care programs.  We do not recommend, endorse, regulate, or monitor child care.  Parents are encouraged to visit and interview providers before making a final decision on child care.
