Day Care

Need information about day care programs? Want to complain?


Agency for Child Development (ACD)
ACD, part of the Administration for Children's Services, runs an informational hotline that can provide information on day care services. This is the office to call to put your name on the waiting list to receive child care subsidies. ACD's resource area offices provide information on day care eligibility. You'll need to make an appointment to determine whether you are eligible for the program. Be forewarned: It can be very difficult to get through to schedule an appointment.
