CHILD CARE

Searching for the best preschool for your child can be overwhelming.  There are several factors to consider when making your choice.  Here is a guide to help you.

We offer a listing of local nursery schools and daycare centers called Preschool Possibilities. This listing includes locations and contact information for each business.  Every January, the library also has a Nursery School Fair where you can visit with representatives from many of these providers.  This fair will be announced in our December newsletter.

The Capital District Child Care Council is a great resource to answer your questions about how to find child care, how to start your own preschool, summer camps and financial aid.
