Child Care Providers: Full-Time Central Ohio Programs

Staff Writer
Columbus Parent

Child care providers have an enormous impact on kids’ formative years. As a parent, you need to find someone you trust, who’s qualified and who fits into your household budget.

To help you explore the options, Columbus Parent and Action for Children have partnered again on a Child Care Directory, which features more than 400 full-time providers, including child care centers and Type A (large) at-home caregivers.

Action for Children is a nonprofit child care resource and referral agency that has been serving Central Ohio since 1972. The organization has more than 1,600 providers in its database.

For this directory, we’ve narrowed the listings to providers that are not only licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services or the Ohio Department of Education, but also are accredited by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC), the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) or the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA) and/or have received Ohio’s Step Up to Quality star rating.

Get top reads, event recommendations, guides, parenting trends and more ideas for family fun. Subscribe to Columbus Parent’s weekly e-newsletter, The Bulletin.

Seeking such accreditation or rating is voluntary. However, by mid-2020, all providers must earn at least the lowest Step Up to Quality rating—one star—to qualify for state reimbursement for students who receive publicly funded child care.

The list of providers that meet these criteria is subject to change, sometimes on a day-to-day basis. New facilities may receive accreditation or a star rating, or, for a variety of reasons, providers might not be re-accredited or could have a change in their star rating. The information presented here is current as of Oct. 1, 2019.

Action for Children’s resource and information specialists can explain public funding, licensing, accreditation and Step Up to Quality requirements, and can guide parents through the search criteria and provide options including full-day and part-day centers, Head Start programs and home-based child care. There is no cost for these services.

Per Action for Children policy, Type B (small) at-home providers are not part of this list. More than 80 of these programs meet the above criteria; contact Action for Children to learn more.

For more information about Action for Children or its child care database, go to actionforchildren.org or call 614-224-0222 or 855-302-4453.

Editor’s note: Because of the sheer size of this list (more than 400 programs), the directory that appears in our Winter 2019 issue includes 176 providers who are accredited and/or have earned at least two stars from the state.

The online directory also features a companion list of more than 200 part-time Preschool Programs and School-age Programs. 

How to Read the Directory

The full-time program listings on this page are broken into two classifications: Child Care Centers, which are full-time programs; and Family Child Care, which are Type A (large) at-home providers—typically also full time.

Providers are organized by county, then ZIP code, then alphabetically within each category.

An asterisk after a facility’s name means it accepts families who qualify for publicly funded child care from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

See the “Related Content” inset to access a list of part-time child care providers.
