Child Care Referrals

Quality care involves a safe place for children to play and explore. Safety is not only in the physical surrounding - it's emotional as well. It is important for your child to find toys and areas that are safe for his or her state of development; it's important that he or she feels welcomed, loved and comfortable with those who care for him or her. A good caregiver is loving and responsive, respects the child's individuality and offers quality surrounding for play and exploration. Remember to take your time, do your homework, and ask lots of questions.

The IdahoSTARS project provides a variety of services to assist parents and families in their search for quality child care. With the IdahoSTARS project, parents can search online for child care or receive personalized assistance from their regional referral specialist. Referral specialists work to match your family needs with providers who best meet your requirements.
