Search for Child Care

Research indicates that the first five years of life are the most formative for a child’s brain. These early years are a “window of opportunity” when the brain makes the connections necessary for learning. Finding and choosing an early care and education (ECE) or school-age (SA) child care program is a decision that will nurture your child’s development during these critical years.
