In many communities, the demand for child care far outstrips the need. PCOE supports child care providers through training, coaching and advocacy. This site will provide providers with information about our licensing programs, access for training and professional development opportunities. We understand providers schedules are busy and so our website is here to inform, education and provide as much information online as possible for your convenience. If you don't find the information you need, our staff is always available to assist.
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.
