Find Child Care & Early Learning Programs

Making an informed decision for your child can be daunting. With so much information out there it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start. The Early Learning Division wants to help! This section of the website is dedicated to parents and caregivers looking for basic child care and early learning program resources.

For many families, child care is often a necessity in these early years, even early months, of a child’s life. Our partners at Western Oregon University for early learning have some helpful resources including an online child care locator to assist with your child care needs. Please check out the basic child care guide and use the find child care search to learn more about providers in your area.

As a state, Oregon has many options to help families. We offer a wide range of early learning programs bringing high-quality early childhood experiences to our most vulnerable and underserved children and families. As an introduction, we brought together our programs for you to explore and created a program locator in order to connect you with the ones near you.
