Provider Listings

All child care providers (home; center; after-school; out-of-school; summer camp; etc.) in Allegheny County are invited to create or update their program profile on Allegheny Child Care.

Providers can add, view, and edit their profile listing at providers.alleghenychildcare.org.

In particular, programs are asked to update their:

  • current operational status (open/closed and availability);
  • age group(s) served; and
  • basic profile information.

Once a program administrator has used the tool to adjust or confirm their listing, they will receive regular email reminders to update their vacancy information so parents can search for and find their program. By updating program information, the tool assists directors and owners with promoting and marketing their programs to families and helps to expedite the process for getting children enrolled. Families who use the tool are then able to more easily find their desired program making an often stressful task less burdensome.

About Allegheny Child Care

Child care needs for families are varied, and may change at any time. The 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic created a situation that caused many early learning programs to have to close abruptly or drastically adjust their operations. In turn, this left many families without continued care and education for their young children.

The Allegheny Child Care initiative is: managed by Trying Together in partnership with the Allegheny County Department of Human Services, and Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST, an initiative of the United Way of Southwestern PA); with additional support from the City of Pittsburgh; and was developed in collaboration with Child Care Aware of America, The Heinz Endowments, and technology partners BowtieBrightHive, and BridgeCare.

On Friday, May 29, 2020, Governor Tom Wolf shared his and Dr. Rachel Levine’s new orders that moved 16 counties (including Allegheny) to the “green phase” of his Re-Opening Plan beginning on Friday, June 5. This announcement permitted all child care programs within counties that were moved to the yellow and green phases and could comply with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reopen. More information regarding child care operations and guidance from OCDEL during the COVID-19 pandemic are available online at: pakeys.org/ece-coronavirus-resources/.
