Care About Childcare - Weber State University helps you as a provider to fill vacant spots in your program by referring your name to families who are looking for child care. We collect information on your program including hours of operation, age group vacancies, experience or training with special needs, transportation etc. When families in the community contact us, we give them the names and phone numbers of the providers who are best suited to meet their needs. The information collected will also appear on the Care About Childcare website hosted by the Department of Workforce Services.

Update Your Information

If you are currently receiving referrals from us, you can complete our vacancies update to let us know how many openings you may have. You can also use this update to change your days & times and there is a line for you to tell us what else you'd like changed.

If you would like to update more information or are new to child care and have yet to register with us please complete the full record update.

Utah Afterschool Network

If you run an out of school time program, you need to update your record with us. The Utah Afterschool Network uses our database for their online referral network. Updating here will ensure that they have the latest information on your program.


If you operate a licensed exempt preschool we would love to list you in our Preschool Guide.
Our preschool guide is meant to be a tool for parents who don't need child care, but are looking for just the right preschool program. The front of the guide has useful tips to help parents select the perfect preschool. The rest of the guide is dedicated to local preschool programs as a place to advertise their services.

Summer Programs

Each summer we produce a new Summer Activity Guide. This guide helps parents with school-aged children who are not ready to stay home alone, but are not happy with traditional child care. It also helps those parents looking for a way to keep their school-aged children busy for the summer. Programs that operate for the summer only can place themselves on the list in the guide.
