< RE: Child Care Provider Database Referrals
Contact: Gail Frederick Child Care Program

Being a parent is a challenging and rewarding. Finding quality child care for your child is one of the most important duties you will perform as a parent. Child care is a fact of life for more than 25 million Americans with children under the age of 6. Making a child care choice is a personal issue. Your neighbor’s need for child care may be very different than yours.

HAWC Partnerships for Children "An Iowa Empowerment/Decat Area" can help with the important decisions you need to make regarding child care for your family. HAWC offers a database of child care providers in Howard, Allamakee, Winneshiek, and Clayton counties so you can easily locate available openings in your community. The database offers information on the location of the child care providers, the times the providers are doing care, if the provider is registered with the Department of Human Services, and if the provider has a binding contract between them and the parents. The database is updated regularly and is offered free of charge to the community.

HAWC also offers assistance in determining what type of child care is best for you. The HAWC Partnerships for Children staff can sit down and discuss quality child care and also provide resources on quality issues in childcare.

If you are interested in learning more about the child care services through HAWC or are looking for child care in your community, Please call the HAWC Partnerships for Children office at 563-382-4447.
