Care About Childcare

Care About Childcare

The mission of Care About Childcare is to promote quality environments for all children through education and support.

Child care is much more than just caring for children.  Child care is a family issue, a business issue, an employment issue, an education issue, and a community issue.

Care About Childcare

Care About Childcare is an online system designed in partnership with the Child Care Licensing Program and it is intended to promote quality childcare and to help parents locate licensed providers in their area. For more information visit CareAboutChildcare.utah.gov.



Summer Activity Guide

Care About Childcare @ Children’s Service Society - compiles a Summer Activity Guide each spring to assist you in arranging quality summer programs for your children. There are a variety of programs listed. Some offer full-time as well as part-time schedules, some focus on the development of a specific skill, while others are classes and activities that may require children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian (such as public libraries or swimming pools). If you are unable to find one specific program to meet all of your needs for the entire summer, you may consider enrolling your child in several programs that each run for a part of the summer. Please click here to view our current summer activity guide.
