School-Age Child Care

Before- and after-school programs provide care for school-age children in a variety of settings. Many, but not all, school-age child care programs must be licensed. Child Care Connection only provides referrals to licensed programs or those that are legally exempt from licensing.

Click on the links in the Forms section for information on choosing a quality school-age program.

We do not license, endorse, or recommend any particular provider and cannot assure that any provider offers quality child care. You should visit several providers to determine which is best for your family and decide for yourself if any fulfill your needs.
