For Familiesfamily

If you are a parent and you need to locate child care, we can help, at no cost. Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas is regulated by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to make child care referrals. We are the only regulated child care resource and referral agency in our service delivery area. Our services assist parents and child care providers alike.

Our goals include empowering parents to recognize and choose high-quality child care, as well as to assist people in balancing work and family issues. We will help you:

· Find out which regulated child care facilities have openings.
· Learn which facilities are available the hours and times you need.
· Explore options on cost, transportation and types of child care facilities.

We supply tips on interviewing and selecting the best provider/facility for your child, as well as materials on parenting classes, support groups, activities for children and creative ways to encourage child development.
