How can I find quality child care programs open during COVID-19 in San Francisco?
Children's Council has an online child care search engine "Child Care Finder" featuring the most up-to-date listings of San Francisco child care and preschool programs. You can access comprehensive program information and view photos of each child care site by searching as a guest or creating an account to save your preferences and favorite programs.
Prior to your child(ren) returning to child care, we invite you to read Children’s Council’s COVID-19 Guidance for Parents in the article “What are tips to ensure my child is in a safe, nurturing, and clean child care environment during this time?"
If you are in need of financial assistance to pay for child care, we recommend applying through Early Learning San Francisco (ELSF) at www.EarlyLearningSF.org. You will enter your family size and income to assess if you might qualify for financial assistance. For additional financial assistance options, check out our child care financial assistance calculator.
If you are receiving public assistance (cash-aid) or need more personalized help with your child care search, you can also contact the Children’s Council Resource & Referral team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 415.343.3300.
