Help for Child Care Search

June 06, 1991

Although there is a shortage of licensed child care in North County, several services make the search easier. Here are some of the groups offering referrals:

CHILDCARE RESOURCE SERVICE

495-7070

Parents who call the service are given the names of five licensed day-care providers. If those don't work out, five more names are supplied until an appropriate placement is found. The service has lists of special needs child-care providers and of agencies providing in-home service.

In April, the service handled 1,902 referrals for 2,394 children, said program director Paula Leard. Free to parents.

FAMILY DAY CARE ASSN.

741-8866

Offers referrals to parents who want to place their children in licensed in-home settings, according to North County Area Coordinator Cheron Yusko.

Members of the organization are providers of licensed child care in their homes. Free to parents.

CHILD CARE COMMUNITY

REFERRAL SERVICE

574-1454

Composed of 40 volunteers who refer parents to licensed family day care homes. Free to parents.

CHILD CARE MATCH

451-7972
