Get Your Child Care Listed Online

CB104963Although word of mouth is still the best advertising any child care center can receive, it’s becoming increasingly important to be listed in online directories as more and more parents search for daycare providers online.

Recently I talked about how to Get your Child Care Business Found on Google. Today is a follow up to that article. There are many places you can have your child care center listed, even if you don’t have a web site. All you need is basic information like the name, location and contact information for your child care business.  

Child Care Listings

The sites below all offer some way of having your child care business listed. A few offer free listings while others charge a one time or monthly fee. I’d suggest starting out with a few of them to see if they help bring you new families and inquiries about the child care programs and age groups you serve.

*Note of Thanks* I’d like to give credit to my friend Deb from Deb’s Child Care in Boise, ID for originally posting this list at I’ve expanded on it a bit including a notation as to whether or not they charge a fee (with “& up” meaning there are other price options).
