When schools are closed due to inclement weather, parents may need backup care. It’s a good idea to visit a few programs ahead of time to see which child care situation will work best on snow days. Then when bad weather hits, you’ll have a number of options from which to choose. You can click on the links below for a list of programs providing backup care in each geographic area.
The Office for Children maintains an extensive database of regulated child care programs, including child care centers, as well as county permitted and state licensed family child care providers. Families can search the database using a series of criteria including location, hours of operation and languages spoken.
For additional help, call the Office for Children at 703-449-8484.
The child care programs in this database have a valid Fairfax County permit or State license on the date of the search. Updates to the database are made when information is made available to the Office of Children. Inclusion in the database does not represent an endorsement by Fairfax County. Screening child care programs and selecting child care is a parental responsibility.
