California Department of Social Services – Community Care Licensing
Providers deal with several different departments, agencies, and groups when running their family child care. Licensing is one of the most important because it is responsible for issuing our licenses, conducting regular home inspections, and can also take disciplinary actions like citations or license revocations.
