How do I become a Family Childcare Provider?

  1. Attend a Community Care Licensing (CCL) orientation.
  2. Attend basic health and safety training.
  3. Obtain a criminal background check clearance.
  4. Submit a licensing application to CCL.
  5. Pass a CCL home inspection.

Community Care Licensing (CCL) Orientations for family childcare homes are online at the California Child Care Licensing website,  Contact Child Care Licensing at Del Norte Health and Human Services at (707) 464-3191, ext. 274 to apply.

First Aid, CPR, and Health and Safety Training is offered in the community throughout the year. Contact the Del Norte Child Care Council at (707) 464-8311 to find out about upcoming classes.

What is a TrustLine Provider? TrustLine is a registry created by the California Legislature as an important tool for parents to use when selecting an in-home or home care provider for their children. All childcare providers listed with TrustLine have submitted their fingerprints to the California Department of Justice and have no disqualifying criminal convictions in California. In addition, some but not all, childcare providers listed with TrustLine have also received a clearance from an FBI criminal record check. For more information about TrustLine, visit, or call 1.800.822.8490.

How the Tribe can help!

When funding allows, the Tribe can reimburse you for your start-up and licensing costs such as training expenses, application fees, and any cost associated with a background check.

The Tribe may also offer small grants to childcare providers to purchase items needed in a home or facility for health and safety or quality improvement.

Call Community & Family Services for more information at (707) 487-9255.
