Information for Visiting Parents

These referrals are provided as information only. It is expected that parents will work
directly with the agency, as NCEAS does not make arrangements for child care.


Children's Resource and Referral

(805) 962-8988
This organization provides lists of child care providers. Some offer drop-in child care. The agency will work with parents only. A parent should phone the agency directly and provide information about the child: age, any specific needs, dates and times needed for child care. This information is entered into their database which maintains current provider information. They match the parent/child's needs with the provider. The parent is given several names of providers to contact directly. If none of the names work, the agency will provide a longer list.

Child Time Professional Nanny Placement Service

(805) 962-4433
