Welcome to Child Care Choices!


Since 1995, it has been Child Care Choices vision to “collaborate with families, child care providers and the community to retain and create quality solutions to the early care and educational needs and concerns in Crawford, Marion, Morrow and Richland counties.” From the beginning, our caring, dedicated staff have worked tirelessly to provide the very best services and to be the very best resources to our clientele.

Over the past 18 years, we have not only provided child care referrals to parents, we have also given them the means to know what to look for in a quality child care experience for the whole family. We have not only sat on numerous community boards and committees, we have also dedicated ourselves to many grass roots efforts that have directly benefitted children and families in our local communities. We have not only offered countless hours of high quality professional development and technical assistance to child care providers, we have also forged deep and lasting relationships with all types of child care providers that won’t soon be forgotten.

Therefore, it is with great sadness that we announce that due to unforeseen funding changes, we will be closing our doors as of June 28, 2013.

Please continue to utilize the Ohio Professional Registry at to find trainings to meet your needs, and as of July 1st the YWCA Child Care Resource & Referral Agency (of Toledo) will be providing resource and referral services in Crawford, Marion, Morrow, and Richland counties.

For information regarding publicly funded child care, please contact your local county department of Job and Family Services.

It has been a pleasure meeting your needs over the years, and we wish you much success. We hope that you never stop striving to improve the lives of the children in your care. Remember, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. (Henry Adams)
