Welcome to our Provider Directory Page
This is a referral page for informational purposes only.  All of the
providers listed on our site are members of the Dakota County
Family  Child Care Association. This is an advertising opportunity
offered only to our members.  Updates are made on an as-needed
basis.  All
licensed child care providers must meet safety standards
set forth by the State of Minnesota.

The DCFCCA does not accept any responsibility for the referral of any
provider listed.  When choosing a family child care provider, parents
are encouraged to check a provider's references and license history.

Unlicensed Child Care
In Minnesota, a person may only provide legally "unlicensed care" if
they care for relatives and
one unrelated family. This includes the
caregiver’s own children.  A person cannot do unlicensed care if they
were ever denied a license, had their license revoked or their license  
is currently suspended.  You can verify a provider's licensing status
by using the Licensing Lookup link above or by calling Dakota County
Social Services at 952-891-7400.

There are no safety regulations for unlicensed child
care providers!
