Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

There is no limit to the number of child care providers that are used for the Child Care Credit.

The IRS instructions for Form 2441 specifically state to list ALL providers.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
