No, you only need to include information on the child’s age that is in need of care.
When typing in child information there is a “+” plus sign where you can add additional children to your search based on their current age.
No, you only need to input the address where you are searching for child care. You can also search locations along your commute to work, or use “other” if you are looking in a different part of Allegheny County from where you work or live.
Please allow 48 hours for the provider to respond, and then try calling or emailing again.
The age group information is based on the age of the child that you provided. If you are looking for other age group information for a different child, please add that child’s age.
In certain cases, a provider may be open but has not had a chance to update their available seat information. You may send a direct message via the tool to the provider to inquire about their availability, or contact them directly via phone or email. If you find any issues or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After you search for providers, you can click the “heart” symbol to create a list of providers that you are interested in that’s only accessible to you.
After you create a list of providers with a “heart” symbol to favorite them, you can download that list of providers. In the upper right corner, you can click the button “Download favorites".
Providers may update their available seat information or open/closed status at any time.
Providers are listed by distance starting with the location closest to the address you used for the search.
Click on the child care provider’s name.
After you see the list of providers, you can click on filters to only show providers with available seats. The tool will then show providers with available seats for that particular age group.
