Choosing an early care and education program for your child is one of your most important decisions. As your child’s first and best teacher, you want what’s best for them while you’re away – a healthy, safe and nurturing environment that will ensure they’re prepared for kindergarten and the rest of their educational journey. This guide helps walk you through the many factors you’ll want to consider.

Sometimes it's hard to know what to look for. We recommend you call the programs on your list, visit the ones that are a good fit, and then get references from other parents. This checklist can make that process easier.

Program Checklist


Little learners thrive when they are healthy, happy and supported – whether that’s making certain they have access to high-quality early care and learning programs, healthy breakfast options or a library card to stock up on bedtime stories. As your child’s first and best teacher, you are so important to their success. One additional way you can help improve your child’s well-being is by focusing on your own — whether that’s through building your career, improving your health or learning new tips for parenting young children. We are proud to work with Brighter Futures Indiana and findhelp to serve as navigators for families like yours – expertly assisting you in finding high-quality child care and connecting you with additional opportunities to meet your needs.
