Child Care Search


Searching for a child care provider can be overwhelming. At Marin Child Care Council, we provide help by connecting families with child care providers. Our Resource & Referral team keeps an active database of child care providers in Marin County that includes family child cares, centers, preschools and nursery schools. Our Resource & Referral specialist meets one-on-one with families to provide referrals that fit their unique circumstances. We welcome providers to contact us if they would like to be included in our database, and we encourage families to call, email, or stop by to discuss all the options available.


Choosing the best child care for your child can be a difficult decision – there are so many things to consider. Marin Child Care Council can help make your decision easier. Marin Child Care Council offers free and convenient ways to obtain referrals to child care programs in your area.
