Steps to Finding Child Care

  1. Begin as early as possible. The demand for care exceeds available resources.
  2. Call Windham Child Care Association for Windham County at 802.254.5332 x254 (or toll free at 886.254.5332).
    • Ask about characteristics of high quality care, state child care regulations, and available local resources.
    • Request profiles of programs that may meet your need.
  3. Screen programs/providers over the phone: Ask about ages of children cared for, hours, number of children in your child’s group, program philosophy, staff background and training, and any other critical concerns you may have.
  4. Make an appointment to visit the program
  5. Check the regulatory history and ask for references of the child care provider you choose.
