When choosing a child care program, the most important consideration is finding a program that provides high-quality care. Choose the highest-quality program that fits your budget and schedule - and remember that high-quality child care is worth the extra cost!
Finding Programs in Your Community
Your community has a local child care resource and referral agency whose responsibility is to link you with child care programs in your area. Trained Parent Counselors at your child care resource and referral agency are familiar with the different child care options and may be able to guide you to programs that best meet your family's needs. Your child care resource and referral agency can also provide you with information on early childhood development and can help answer your questions about children with special needs. To find your local child care resource and referral agency in Georgia , go to the Georgia Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (GACCRRA) and click on the city that's closest to your home.
