Enhanced Referral Service

The convenient way to find child care!

Looking for child care can be confusing and time consuming, but you don’t have to do it alone.  PATCH can help you take the guesswork out of finding child care through our Enhanced Referral service!

We provide a list of Child Care Providers in your area based on criteria you select.  We then contact those Providers for you to find openings.  All our referrals are state licensed child care professionals who meet health and safety standards and have undergone background checks.

How will it help your family?

  • PATCH produces a list of child care referrals that meet the specific needs of your family. 
  • PATCH takes an extra step to verify for you those providers that have suitable vacancies. 
  • PATCH removes the hassle of having to call around to see who has space for your child - you will only receive child care referrals to those providers that have a ready space for your child.
  • PATCH conducts a follow-up with your family to ensure care has been found.  If you need additional referral help with a vacancy check, we'll do that too.
  • PATCH alerts you to child care subsidy programs and whether you may be eligible.

Please contact your local PATCH office for our Enhanced Referral service, a low-cost, convenient way to get peace of mind about your child care.
