Child Care Check
Welcome to Child Care Check!
Choosing child care is important for your family. High-quality care helps children get ready for success in school and life.
For help finding high-quality child care that meets your family’s needs, start by contacting our partners at Child Care Aware of Washington.
Child Care Check offers basic information about child care providers’ licensing history.
It also shows whether a child care provider is part of Early Achievers, our state’s voluntary program to improve child care quality.
Each child care provider will be listed in one of these ways:
- Quality Level of Excellence: Provider has achieved a high level of demonstrated quality.
- Participating in Quality Improvement: Provider is working on activities to improve quality.
- Not Participating
