Services to Children

  • Annual Aggregate Report
    State-level aggregate child care program information is compiled annually for all child care and development programs administered by the Early Education and Support Division (EESD) and represents an unduplicated count of the children served during the state fiscal year (July through June). This report was developed by counting children once (children may be counted twice if they received services from more than one program throughout the year) during the fiscal year.
  • Child Care Annual Statewide Reports
    This is an annual series of statewide reports documenting licensed child care supply and demand in California. These reports are based on services provided during a specific or month or months as indicated on each report.

Child Care and Development Budget
