The Connecticut Office of Early Childhood (OEC) is launching a statewide campaign aimed at helping the state’s children get the TLC they need— TLC meaning Trusted Licensed Care!

The educational campaign will seek to reach diverse families across Connecticut to remind parents to seek TLC- Trusted Licensed Care. In 2016 and 2017, there were six known infant deaths that occurred in unlicensed, unrelated family child care homes in Connecticut.

Licensed child care providers maintain high standards for health and safety—such as submitting to routine inspections, staff member criminal background checks, training, and the opportunity for providers to turn to the OEC for assistance and advice. “Connecticut’s children represent the future of our state, and deserve a safe and healthy environment to develop, grow, and thrive," said OEC Commissioner David Wilkinson.

The OEC is committed to taking all steps possible to keep our youngest children safe. Strategies include working with child care providers to ensure a safe and healthy environment; providing support and technical assistance to those interested in caring for children at home to obtain a license and start their own business; and sharing information with parents and reaching out to families.

“This campaign supports all of Connecticut's parents and families, so that we deliver the best possible outcomes for the state’s youngest children," said former state Senator Beth Bye, who was recently named by Governor Lamont as the next OEC Commissioner.

Families can find TLC, Trusted Licensed Care, by visiting the website or by dialing 211. The site offers a searchable directory of providers who maintain a child care license issued by the OEC. Thank you for your commitment to TLC for Connecticut’s children! For more information, contact the OEC, visit or call (860) 500-4412.
