You may search for care based on the following criteria: 

  • The location where care and education is requested
  • The age of your child
  • The center's academic performance 
  • The special needs of your child; for example a provider with special needs training
  • Hours of operation, before/after care provided 
  • Transportation is provided 

Choosing the right care for your child is a choice that only you, the parent, can make.  Volunteers of America South Central Louisiana does not rate or recommend specific child care providers. It is up to you to evaluate the quality of care being provided by each provider.
