Local Child Care Resources
There are many child care options in our community, with Child Care Centers and Family Child Care Providers the most common options. All Child Care Centers must be licensed and Family Providers can either be Certified, Registered or Exempt. To learn more about what each of these designations means, click here.
A good contact for child care reference resources is Family Connections which is our local Child Care Resource & Referral Agency (CCRR) and is located on the Linn-Benton Community College campus in Albany. Their trained specialists can help you find child care, usually within a day or two. They are your best resource for finding child care in the community.
A small fee is charged for this service, based on income, but they have up-to-date information on child care resources in Linn & Benton counties.
Specifically, they provide:
- Referrals for parents looking for care
- Training opportunities
- Support and problem solving
- How to start and manage a child care business
They can be reached at 541-917-4899 or 1-800-845-1363
6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany, OR 97321.
