Child Care Search

Welcome to the Office for Children's online child care search. There are nearly 2,000 regulated child care programs in this database that can be searched three ways. You can search by zip code, conduct a detailed search based on your family's needs, or do a map-based search. We also provide information on what to consider when choosing child care. For additional help or if you have any questions, please call us at 703-449-8484 or email us at OFCCCARInfo@fairfaxcounty.gov.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some child care programs may be temporarily closed. Please call any child care program you are interested in to check their current operational status.
