Childcare

Child care is important to Ohio’s working families. You must decide which type of child care best meets your family’s needs. It is best to visit several child care settings and meet with several providers before you decide. Good child care is more than custodial care that meets minimum requirements.

Look for Child Care that provides opportunities for your child to play, explore, and grow in a creative, happy, and healthful way.

The child care you select for your child will be his/her environment for part or most of the day. The decision is an important one and deserves your thoughtful consideration.

It is your right and responsibility as a parent to visit and ask many questions about the child care so you can make an informed decision.
