ACS provides resources to help parents with their child care needs and support providers and people who are running child care programs. For qualifying families, child care programs provide free or low-cost child care for children 6 weeks to 13 years old (or to 19 years old for children with disabilities). Child care vouchers help cover the cost of child care at hundreds of home-based and center-based providers across the city.
If you are a parent, caregiver or other family member looking for more information about child care, please go to the Families page.
If you are a child care provider or interested in being a child care provider, please go to the Providers page.
