Child Care Aware makes child care referrals, not recommendations. We refer parents to licensed programs; however, some preschools and school age programs are exempt from licensing. We do not guarantee the accuracy of the information concerning any provider in our files. We do not license, endorse, or recommend any particular provider, nor do we make any judgment about the quality of care given by any provider. Consequently, we urge parents to interview a provider and to check the provider’s references carefully before leaving a child in that provider’s care.
