While the California Department of Education continues to operate the California State Preschool Program, the Early Childhood Development Act of 2020 (Senate Bill (SB) 98, Chapter 24, Statutes of 2020) authorized the transfer of many childcare programs from the California Department of Education to the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) effective July 1, 2021. The content on this page may include programs that have moved to CDSS. For additional assistance you can either visit the CDSS Child Care Transition web page or call 1-833-559-2420 for more information.
Resource and Referral agencies and programs (R&Rs) funded by the California Department of Education, Early Learning and Care Division (ELCD), are located in every county in the state. They help families find child care that best meets their needs, recruit and train child care providers, and collect data from parents and child care providers.
State-level R&R service data is compiled annually for all child care and development programs administered by the ELCD pursuant to Education Code sections 8210-8214 and the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, sections 18240-18248. R&R programs are required to provide information on the availability of child care services in local communities, and to collect statistical data regarding child care and development services.
