Choosing Quality Care

Choosing the Right Setting for Your Child

It’s a big job!

We are here to help you find the best fit based on your child’s needs and your preferences. This service is available free of charge. We take your preferences and generate a list of child care providers for you!

Quality child care environments are nurturing and safe. These environments present opportunities and materials for children of all ages to learn through play. This is essential to your child’s development.

Accurate information about child development and appropriate expectations for children’s behavior at every age help parents see their children and youth in a positive light and promote their healthy development. We are here to assist you in learning about the different attributes of a nurturing environment that meets all your child’s needs, including their need for early learning.

Safe Sleep

Did you know suffocation and strangulation in an adult bed is the leading cause of injury-related death for Florida infants under age 1?

To help prevent these deaths, child care providers and families must work together to keep babies safe by placing them in their cribs, on their backs, every time they are put down to sleep. Check out the resources below to learn how you can practice safe sleep in your home or child care.
