This Early Care & Education Search Tool will help you locate the type of early care and education program that meets your needs. You also can learn more about programs' licensing status, Step Up To Quality rating, and inspection results.

Early learning experiences last a lifetime. It is key that all families have access to early childhood education information about high quality early care, preschool, kindergarten and other educational settings to prepare young children for a lifetime of learning and success.

Strong and healthy children are better able to explore their physical world and better prepared for formal schooling. For children to grow and learn to their fullest potential, they must be healthy, happy, and engaged in creative play.
