Know Your Rights
Child Care Eligibility
Choosing child care is one of the most important decisions families make, but often times families do not know how to navigate the system and what they are eligible for. The California Childcare Resource and Referral Network’s local agencies help parents take the guesswork out of choosing care by giving them referrals to local child care providers, information on state licensing requirements, availability of child care subsidies, and other pertinent information.
Visit the California Childcare Resource & Referral Network’s family resource page to find more information on your rights as a parent when it comes to child care eligibility.
Paid Family Leave
Paid Family Leave is the essential employee-funded insurance program that allows Californian parents time off work to care for a new child. Paid Family Leave is proven to help the development of a child and allows parents critical bonding time.
