The 2015 Preschool and Child Care Directory provides information on over 60 area facilities that provide services for children ages six and under. The directory provides information on area preschools, child care programs, educational approaches, special needs programs, and specialty programs.

If you are a preschool or child care provider, you can have your facility listed in the 2016 directory and can reserve a table at the Preschool Information Night. Both of these services are free of charge. There are also opportunities to place a paid advertisement in the directory, which reaches over 5,000 people. A registration form will be provided online in October 2015.
