Check out listings for 208 programs, in partnership with Action for Children.

Choosing a child care provider is one of the biggest decisions parents make. There are numerous options, but it can be hard to sort through them all to find a quality program that fits your budget and geographic requirements.

To that end, Columbus Parent and Action for Children have partnered again on a Child Care Directory, this section of which features 208 part-time providers, including preschool and school-age programs.

Action for Children is a nonprofit child care resource and referral agency that has been serving Central Ohio since 1972. The organization has more than 1,600 providers in its database.

For this directory, we’ve narrowed the listings to providers that are not only licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services or the Ohio Department of Education, but also are accredited by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) or the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and/or have received Ohio’s Step Up to Quality star rating. Seeking such accreditation or rating is voluntary.

The list of providers that meet these criteria is subject to change, sometimes on a day-to-day basis. New facilities may receive accreditation or a star rating, or, for a variety of reasons, providers might not be re-accredited or could have a change in their star rating. The information presented here is current as of Nov. 26, 2018. 

Action for Children’s resource and information specialists can explain public funding, licensing, accreditation and Step Up to Quality requirements, and can guide parents through the search criteria and provide options including full-day and part-day centers, Head Start programs and home-based child care. There is no cost for these services.

Per Action for Children policy, Type B (small) at-home providers are not part of this list. More than 80 of these programs meet the above criteria; contact Action for Children to learn more.

For more information about Action for Children or its child care database, go to actionforchildren.org or call 614-224-0222 or 855-302-4453. 

How to Read the Directory 

The listings are broken into two classifications: Preschool Programs, which are part-time; and School-age Programs, which typically also are part time.

Providers are organized by county, then ZIP code, then alphabetically within each category.

An asterisk (*) after a facility’s name means it accepts families who qualify for publicly funded child care from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

See the "Related Content" inset to access a list of full-time child care providers.
