Information for Child Care Providers

​Our Resource and Referral department provides free child care referrals, without discrimination and without regard to income.  Families receive information to assist them in choosing a quality early care and education program that meets both their needs and the needs of the child(ren) while maximizing parental choice.  Referrals are made to license-exempt programs and licensed providers/facilities so long as they are in compliance with requirements of the Department of Social Services, River City Licensing and California's Health and Safety Code.

Please notify us anytime there are changes to:

  • Your Enrollment
  • Your Hours or Operation
  • The Ages you Serve
  • The Rates you Charge
  • Your License Capacity, Parameters or Status
  • If You Anticipate a Change of Address

Please call Cindy Schmidt at:  530.745.1368 to update changes - or if you have any Licensing questions.
