Childcare Directory

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the child care centers’ information included in the directory may not be accurate. Many centers remain closed. For specific questions about the centers, please reach out to each center directly.

The online Yale Childcare Directory is a searchable web page that provides details on numerous childcare centers in Greater New Haven. Searches can be filtered by town and ages served, and the full list is alphabetical by town. Current Yale University parents (or parents-to-be) can contact worklife@yale.edu for information about childcare and can also register for the next Childcare Information Session.

Important notice: This directory has been compiled to assist members of our community in locating childcare options for their children. Because the program listings have been furnished to us by each of the individual programs, Yale University makes no representation as to the accuracy of the information provided by the programs. By including such information, Yale University in no way sponsors a program or makes any guarantee as to the quality of its service or facilities. The inclusion of a non-Yale agency in this list does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the University as to quality of care or service to be provided. Users of these listings are solely responsible for their own decisions involving the selection and employment of child care providers
