Entrusting your loved ones with anyone is stressful. California offers a great link to learn about daycare, adoption and other care facilities before you even pick up the phone.
Please follow this link (California CCLD Facility Search Form) for the one-stop, very best resource on daycare centers in the State of California. Search by zip code or type of facility and see what the Golden State has to say about the care service provider you’re considering.
To search the history, licensing status and complaints about a care service provider, visit the State of California’s official licensing page. The site is continually updated and offers a great tool for assessing care options.
