This database is used to provide courtesy referrals to anyone who requests them at no cost to either child care providers or referral clients. Child care providers share the information that is included in the database and that information is used to help refer families to providers that might meet the needs of their children. Child care providers and their information appear on this list on a voluntary basis. Referrals are available online or by phone.
