The COVID-19 situation is changing daily. Child Care Aware of Washington is here to support you and the children and families you serve.
K-12 school and workplace closures are impacting children, families and providers. Our Family Center is tracking both provider closures and openings so we can provide accurate referrals to families seeking care. Call 1-800-446-1114 if:
- Your child care facility closes.
- Your child care facility has openings. You will be asked about the age(s) you can serve and whether you take Working Connections Child Care subsidy.
Our Family Center is fully staffed and operational. We are ready to assist you and any families that call us seeking care.
Providing school-age child care because many K-12 school districts have moved to remote learning? We can help. Check out our resources for caring for school-age children.
