Care About Childcare @ Five County offers free child care referrals to families in the community. We can give you the names and phone numbers of child care providers. We encourage parents to choose quality child care.

Note: we do not guarantee quality or refer one provider over another and we accept no responsibility for child care providers. We feel that parents and legal guardians are in the best position to observe and select the site that best meets the needs of their children. Referrals are based on vacancies, scheduling needs, location, etc.

We encourage parents to choose quality child care.
