Free Child Care Referrals for Employees

The average American working parent misses between five and nine days of work each year due to issues with chiId care—costing U.S. businesses $3 biIIion annually. Child Care Council can help control these costs and reduce worker absenteeism through a free employee benefit.

Through our free referrals to registered and licensed child care programs, your employees can receive invaluable information about quality indicators, regulations, and the cost of care.

We are happy to share this benefit with you and your employees in a variety of convenient ways:

  • Employees can call Child Care Council or visit the For Parents section of our website for referrals and information.
  • Referral Specialists can visit your facility to deliver a presentation to employee groups (staff meeting, orientation, special arrangement) at your location. On-site referral services also are an option.
  • The Council can mail service brochures and information to your organization to be shared with employees.

Enhanced Referral Services

For a fee, the Council also offers enhanced referral services for businesses, giving your employees access to a team of professionals.

A Referral Specialist will maintain ongoing communication with a business and its employees in areas such as:

  • Consumer education on child care options and early care and education
  • Personalized child care referral searches for licensed and registered programs
  • Verified openings and availability in child care programs
  • Detailed profiles of various child care options

Utilizing our services will enable your employees to make the best child-care choice for their families, while helping your company avoid the problems that result from unreliable care.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss our services in more detail, either directly with you or during a group presentation to your employees about their child care options. To schedule an appointment, please contact Referral Services Director Renee Scholz at [email protected] or (585) 654-1286.
