Looking for Child Care

Do you need help finding child care? We can help…

Choosing a child care program is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. The final choice will depend on many factors, and you will want to consider them carefully in order to meet the needs of your child and your family.

Types of Child Care

Searching for child care can be a labor-intensive process, but the time you spend searching for the right child care arrangement is worth it. Children and parents who are satisfied with their child care arrangements are less likely to feel stress in other parts of their lives. Children can build relationships with their caregivers, and develop and grow in a safe environment with their peers. Parents can relax in knowing their child is well cared for in a safe, nurturing, and educational setting.
The Child Care Resource Center can provide free child care referrals, matched with parent and family needs by calling us toll-free at 888-458-6230, Monday-Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Voicemail is available after hours and your call will be returned the following business day. You may also email us at ccrc@cherokee.org.
