Child Care Providers

Family Child Care Providers

As members of Child Care Providers United-SEIU Local 99, a joint partnership between SEIU Local 99, SEIU Local 521, and AFSCME-UDW 3930, we’re coming together across California to improve our profession and ensure every child has access to quality early learning and care. A union means we have a strong voice and a seat at the table with the state of California to negotiate reimbursement rates and working conditions, including changes to rules, payment systems, access to affordable care, and more!

Workshops & Events

Looking to develop or strengthen skills? Attend a training on Licensing, CPR/First Aid, Marketing Strategies and more! We also come together for celebrations like Mother’s Day and Provider Appreciation Day.

 CCPU Health Care Fund

The CCPU Health Care Fund Reimbursement Program, also known as CCPU Health, was created to assist eligible child care providers in reducing or eliminating their health care costs by helping to pay for their medical health insurance plan’s monthly premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses. We encourage you to take advantage of our Health Care Reimbursement Program and start saving money today.

In 2022, Child Care Providers United (CCPU) successfully advocated for $100 million from the state of California to support this program. CCPU Health is governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by CCPU and has representation from SEIU Local 521, SEIU Local 99 and the United Domestic Workers/AFSCME Local 3930.
