- Metro Daycare – national site where you can search by area code, etc.
- The Child Care Source – offers referral lists of child care providers in certain counties in Kansas and Missouri.
Given KC’s two-state area, it is important to note the differences in licensing requirements when choosing if you’ll live in Kansas or Missouri.
Home daycare facilities in Kansas must be licensed and registered with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
In Missouri, no license is required if the family childcare home provider cares for four children or less. Preschools do not have to be accredited by the state, but should be accredited by a nationally recognized organization.
