Resource Directory: Childcare

Welcome to Safe+Sound Somerset’s Resource Directory! The Resource Directory is a partial list of the resources available in our community, and is meant to be a starting point to help you identify services and providers. Please note that Safe+Sound Somerset cannot vouch for any of these resources. Search websites, ask for recommendations from friends and peers, and call or email a potential service provider to decide whether or not something is the right fit for you.

This Resource Directory will be updated regularly. S+SS reserves the right to choose which information we will publish.
