Parents encouraged to visit ChildCareSearch to find before- and after-school care


With many children heading back to school this month, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Ohio Department of Education remind parents to visit when searching for before- and after-school care for their children. Families can search for child care providers by county, city, zip code, program type and Step Up To Quality rating. Step Up To Quality is Ohio's five-star tiered quality rating and improvement system, which recognizes care programs that exceed minimum health and safety standards and promote children's learning and development.
