Our team can meet the needs of Central Indiana families, because we live and work right here, every day.
I love working with CCA because they hold a positive and valuable service in our community. Everyone that I have worked with is responsive to collaboration, willing to support ideas and provide information when needed, and CCA staff are innovative thinkers. I look forward to sustaining a working relationship with Child Care Answers.

About our organization
Child Care Answers began as a program of the Day Nursery Association in September 1985. At the time, families seeking help locating and evaluating child care could call and receive information about programs, tailored to their individual needs. Today, families can also get referrals both over the phone and online. In 1985, we also provided support and training for family child care home providers – we’ve expanded our reach to include professionals in child care centers, unlicensed registered ministries, and those interested in starting their own child care business. In 2021, we began our journey as an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization and look forward to continuing to meet the needs of the Central Indiana community.
Our staff brings years of experience in the early childhood education field, as well as a wealth of knowledge and credentials. They are active in our community and are constantly learning from others in their field. But most importantly – they bring passion to their work with families, child care professionals, child care advocates, and the children of Central Indiana. Read More
