Looking for Infant Care or Preschool? We’re here for you.
Finding child care or preschool that meets your family’s needs and budget can feel daunting. Each year over 20,000 families turn to Children’s Council for support in navigating the child care universe.
Before families begin their search, we encourage them to attend our popular Choosing Infant Care or Choosing Preschool workshops.
These workshops cover a wide range of important information, including an overview of child care options (including infant/toddler care, preschool, afterschool and summer programs), how to identify quality indicators, understanding program philosophies, and tips on how to successfully manage the application and enrollment process, from site tours to provider interviews.
Beyond workshops, our highly trained Child Care Navigators can help ensure your child care search is informed through 1-on-1 consultations in person, via email or by phone. We offer services in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese and Russian.
And our mobile-friendly Child Care Finder is San Francisco’s only searchable database of state-licensed child care programs, allowing you to search for care from your desktop or smartphone.
Once you’re prepared with the right resources and information to support your journey in finding child care, your family will be on the road to success.
