Find Child Care Options Near You and Get Help Paying for Them

Children’s healthy development depends on safe and positive experiences when they are young. There are several child care options available to families:

  • Childcare.gov can help you locate safe and affordable child care options near you.
  • Head Start is a federal program that helps children ages birth to five years old from low income families prepare for school. In addition to education, the program provides health, nutrition, and social services depending on your family’s needs.
  • The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program assists families with children whose parents or responsible caregivers cannot provide for the family’s basic needs. To apply for the program, contact your state’s TANF office.
