I just moved to Missouri; how do I find child care?
Finding child care involves gathering information about child care options and preparing yourself to interview providers and visit their programs. We recommend three strategies for gathering information about child care options:
- Call the MO Child Care Resource and Referral Network
(1-800-200-9017; http://www.moccrrn.org/ )
- Talk with your neighbors and co-workers about their
child care arrangements.
- Call the child care programs advertised in the
yellow pages of your local phone book.
