Help Selecting Childcare
Selecting the right childcare for your family can be challenging, but it's among the most important choices families make for their children’s early education. To support faculty, staff, and students as they navigate these important decisions, Northwestern offers the following resources to support your selection process.
- Paid membership to Care.com
Northwestern faculty, staff and students have access to a University-paid membership with Care.com. You'll be able to search Care.com's extensive database of childcare, adult & senior companion care and pet care providers; find help with homework and light housekeeping, process payments electronically and more.
- Childcare Resource & Referral Program from Illinois Action for Children
The University offers a free resource and referral program to help you learn about childcare options and find the best fit for your family. Parents can conduct an efficient, well-informed search with information and advice provided by Action for Children, a non-profit agency that specializes in childcare connections.
