Childcare During COVID-19

Early Childhood OC is maintaining a list of open child care sites for essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis. The searchable database features child care centers and family child care homes that are currently open and serving children from birth through age 12. The site, which includes resources for payment assistance, will be updated every Friday. If you are a Childcare provider who is currently open and would like to be added to the database, please contact Early Childhood OC.
