Childcare information


It may be a challenge to find child care due to COVID-19 related program closures, however, the staff at the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) are trying their best to support families to find the high quality child care that they need.


If you are a parent or caregiver who needs childcare, please complete this parent need for child care survey. Based on the information you provide about your job, employer, number of children, and financial need, the OCFS may be able to help you find the child program you need. 


If you are interested in helping support your community by helping to keep local child care programs operating-especially to care for children of health care and other critical workers, please complete this Survey for Current Child Care Workers. Your responses will be shared with local child care programs that are in need of staff.


*The surveys are in English, they are currently being translated, translations to follow.
