CHILD CARE REFERRALS
We are committed to supporting families in their search for quality, affordable and convenient child care options. Funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division, YMCA Childcare Resource Service offers free child care referrals and resources to families in San Diego County so parents and guardians can make informed decisions about child care.
Child care centers and family child care homes are licensed and inspected by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. We receive monthly updates of active, licensed child-care programs and include them in our referrals. Because every situation and family needs are unique, we do not make recommendations regarding individual providers.
For More Information
We recommend families call the local Community Care Licensing office to schedule an appointment to review the licensing history and substantiated complaints of child-care providers. The Community Care Licensing office can be reached at 1-844-538-8766.
