Department of Education’s Child Care Demand Portal

Good afternoon:   This message is being sent on behalf of Early Learning and Child Development Division with the Department of Education.



On October 17, 2023, the Department of Education’s Child Care Demand Portal went Live.  This portal is a tool to assess and understand the current demand for child care services. The information from this portal will assist the Department of Education to better focus on where space creation is needed most and guide plans for targeted space creation.


Parents and guardians in need of child care are strongly  encouraged to visit the portal and input their information so that the Department of Education can plan more focused space creation as we move forward. The Child Care Demand Portal can be accessed by clicking HERE.  For additional information on the Child Care Demand Portal please visit the following news release:
