As a parent or guardian, choosing child care is one of the most important decisions you will make for your family.

At the WKU CCR&R Child Care Aware of Kentucky we can provide you with information to make your search for child care a little easier.

We will talk with you about what to look for in a quality child care setting and what questions to ask as you interview a child care provider.

WKU CCR&R Child Care Aware of Kentucky referral does not imply a recommendation. Parents must carefully interview and check references before leaving a child in care.

To access your free child care search:

If you need child care outside of Kentucky, visit Child Care Aware to search for a CCR&R in your area.

If you have any questions about quality child care, you may call our office and a WKU CCR&R Child Care Aware of Kentucky staff member will be glad to assist you.

While the Child Care Aware of Kentucky Network only provides referrals to licensed and certified child care programs, we hope the following information about area camps and activities and what to look for when choosing a camp will be helpful. Listing these resources does not imply a recommendation. It is always wise to request references and visit programs before leaving your child.
