The Child Care Licensing Program is pleased to announce the soft launch of our new e-learning modules!  These online modules were accomplished as a result of the Federal Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge Grant.  It is our vision these e-Learning modules will serve to educate child care providers on how to ensure compliance with licensing laws and regulations, provide technical assistance to child care providers and consumers related to health and safety of children, and provide the public and licensing staff with resources and information related to child care licensing.

We invite you to view these modules online at or via link from our Child Care Licensing Homepage at  The e-learning modules are a valuable tool for individuals working with both prospective and current child care providers, as well as those who want to learn more about child care licensing in California.

Please view the videos and share accordingly.  For technical support please contact the child care program office main line at: (916) 651-6040.
