Find a licensed Family, School Age or Center-Based Child Care Program
The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) publishes a searchable directory of licensed early education and care programs in Massachusetts to assist families in finding a provider for their child or children. The EEC licenses child care programs in Massachusetts. There are two types of licensed child care programs:
Family Child Care
Group & School Age Child Care programs
Using the EEC-Licensed program directory
If you are looking for an early education and care program for your child, you can search EEC's directory of licensed child care providers in Massachusetts, by both geographic area and program type. Some licensed programs choose to not be listed in this directory. If a program that you are looking for doesn't appear in your search results, you can call your local EEC office to confirm whether the program is licensed.
