Child Care Referrals

Looking for Child Care?
1-800-481-2151 or 619-521-3070

All licensed child care centers and family child care homes, nanny agencies and license-exempt school based programs are listed in our free referral database. Call the referral line at 619-521-3070 (outside San Diego County) or 1-800-481-2151 (inside San Diego County) to speak with a child care consultant about your child care options.

Child care searches can be done by: age of the child, type of program, hours of care, and area of care needed. Referrals include the name of the program, telephone number, license number, and additional information about the child care program.

When you invest time and thought in your search, you can find a child care provider who provides a secure, safe and nurturing environment for your child.
