For Parents and Guardians

Think smart.

Kids start learning from the moment they're born. As young children, they're having learning experiences everywhere—at home, in child care, or at school.

Finding the right care can be overwhelming, and we are here to support you in this important decision. We'll provide you with the information, tools, and knowledge to help identify your care and early education options.

We'll help you choose the ones that meet your family needs and the developmental needs of your child. And we'll help you know what quality care looks like, how to find it, and how to partner with providers and teachers to make the most of your child's experience during these important early years.
