CCCC has a free and private service to help families find child care. Through this service parents can obtain a list of family child care providers or licensed child care centers. They can also discuss their child care options with a specialist.



Children with Special Needs

The Americans with Disabilities Act promises children with disabilities the chance to share in all activities of community life; this includes attending child care. However, not all child care programs may be able to meet your child's needs to your satisfaction. Parents should interview potential providers and visit programs to decide if the caregiver can meet the needs of your child. CCCC’s referral service can help you find providers who have experience caring for children with special needs by contacting our Resource and Referral Department at 973-923-1433 ext 147 or 106. Parents and caregivers can also receive free copies of CCCC's publications, Choosing Child Care: a Guide for Parents of Children with Special Needs and Choosing Child Care: a Provider's Guide for Children with Special Needs. If you are concerned about your child's development please visit the NJ Early Intervention System's "Family Matters" section at
