Bergen County Office for Children

The Office coordinates child care services in Bergen County, with a focus on availability, affordability and quality of child care. Parents are assisted with choosing child care, referrals to child care providers, and child care subsidies. We also offer opportunities for parents to attend events to network with other parents and we offer classes in child development.
