In California, child care providers are licensed through the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. Providers caring for children from more than one family are required to be licensed.
4Cs, a child care coordinating council in San Mateo County, supports potential providers through application assistance, pre-licensing visits, business development workshops, and training. For questions or assistance please contact our ECE Specialist at (650) 517-1446.
