The online version of the Early Childhood Resource Directory is below.
The listings in this directory include some preschools with extended day options. When exploring a school with extended hours, look at its preschool programming, as well as the quality of its child care facility.

Unless noted, all of the child care facilities listed have ongoing enrollment as long as there are openings. Please note that some programs may fill up as early as January or February for the following fall. Typically, the age eligibility listed is the child’s age as of September 1st of the upcoming school year. Many programs housed in religious institutions will give preference to members. Call for specific information if you are interested in a particular program.

By law, all child care agencies must be open to children with special needs. However, some facilities may work better for a child with special needs and this should be considered when making your decision.


While most programs start enrolling children in January/February for September, please contact programs directly for questions, enrollment options and to schedule a visit any time of year.
