NEWS RELEASE
Need help finding child care?
The Early Learning Coalition of Miami‐Dade/Monroe can help parents find child care in the more than 300 child care programs that remain open in Miami‐Dade and Monroe Counties.


The Early Learning Coalition can help parents who are looking for child care placements for their children. Programs are licensed by the Florida Department of
Children and Families and most have sufficient space to accommodate new children. All programs are required to adhere to Governor DeSantis’ and Mayor
Gimenez’ executive orders regarding social distancing, group sizes, and health and safety.


If a parent needs assistance in locating a program near their job or home, they should contact our Child Care Resource and Referral unit at 305‐646‐7220. The
unit is open five days per week from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.  The maps below reflect where open programs are located in both counties.
