During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Action for Children’s focus is making sure children whose families work in essential health and safety services have access to Temporary Pandemic Child Care programs. Our interactive map shows all of the Temporary Pandemic Child Care programs in Central Ohio and will be updated regularly. If you have questions about how to use the map or need help connecting with a provider, call our specialists at 614-224-0222 ext 299 or submit a request online.

Our services are free to families and all information obtained is kept confidential. While choosing child care can be challenging, we at Action for Children are here to help you make the best decision possible.

You can use our Take the Time and 5C Checklist (English) to help determine what to look for so that your child can have a safe, nurturing experience where he/she can learn and grow. We also have a Spanish 5C Checklist! Is your child prepared to stay home alone? Use our Home Alone Booklet to determine if your child is ready.
