Child Care Aware of Minnesota

This service is funded by the Minnesota Department of Children, Families & Learning. We are part of the Minnesota Child Care Resource & Referral Network, which includes 23 agencies throughout the state. We will provide information, support, referrals and resource materials on child care to parents, child care providers and the general public. The basic referral service will assist parents in locating child care and pre-school programs that best meet individual family needs. Consultation and assistance in evaluating and choosing child care is also available to parents. Resource materials and guidelines for selecting quality care are included in referral packets given to customers. Our service will also provide on-going technical assistance, training and support services for child care providers and the general public. Fees for parents using our service are based on a sliding fee schedule and include free services for low income families. For more information call 1-800-292-5437 or 320-269-8727.
