Online child care finder launched in Indiana

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration recently launched a new online tool to aid families in finding child care and early education providers throughout Indiana.

The website, Childcarefinder.in.gov, allows families to search licensed providers, registered ministries and exempt providers. Families will be able to set search parameters to help meet their specific needs. Parameters include location, type of provider, hours, licensing status and whether or not the provider participates in Paths to Quality, the state’s voluntary quality rating and improvement system.

Inspection reports and validated complaints or enforcement actions for each provider are also provided on the site.

The website can be used from smart phones and mobile devices, as well as on a desktop computer.
