Ways to Find Child Care

These resources are designed to help families make informed decisions about child care. Referrals are not recommendations and do not relate to quality of child care. The responsibility of exploring and determining the best child care provider is solely upon families seeking child care.

  • The Child Care Safety Portal is a resource for parents and families to check on the safety and quality of licensed child care programs in Oregon. The Portal lets you search for a child care provider and view their licensing history over a period of time. The Portal is meant to add to, but not replace, other sources of information.
