Become a Provider

High-quality child care options are needed in Onondaga and Cayuga Counties. Help us build a strong community of high-quality child care in CNY by opening your own home child care business!

As a general rule in NY, any child daycare program planning to serve three or more children for more than three hours a day on a regular basis must obtain a license or registration. Child Care Solutions is here to help guide you through the process of becoming licensed or registered! We have put together the information below to give you a general overview of how to get started.  Our Registration Department is here to answer any questions you might have. Give us a call at (315) 446-1220 or e-mail us your question, we are happy to help and our services are always free
