Find Child Care by New Maps
Child Development Resource Center Mapping Tool Identifies Child Care in Santa Cruz County
The Child Development Resource Center, a program of the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, is a one-stop source for Santa Cruz County families seeking child care. Recently expanded resources now include two interactive mapping tools that show the location of licensed child care centers and family child care homes. One tool, MyChildCarePlan.org is now a statewide source of child care information.
These maps not only enable families to easily find and connect with their local providers, they help to highlight opportunities to add new providers to better meet families’ needs for accessible child care.
Providers are encouraged to list their business for free with the Child Development Resource Center, which then allows families to be referred to their programs. Providers also can receive help becoming licensed and get connected with resources like health and safety training, professional development, community connections and more. Child care providers can visit the Child Development Resource Center’s new website to add or update their business listing. They also can tap into resources and reach out to staff with questions.
