Welcome to the Online Child Care Registry - For Families


If you are an essential/critical care worker who does not yet have child care during this COVID-19 crisis, AND you have not contacted our office by phone or email, please complete the Essential Services Worker Online Request Form. Once complete, we will attempt to match your needs with an available child care provider. These child care arrangements are temporary.

If you are planning for longer term and future child care, please ignore this notice and complete the online child care registry.
