Starting a Child Care Program
If you would like to start a child care program or provide family child care in your home, a great place to start is the Provider’s page of the website of the Children’s Council of San Francisco. They offer information about becoming a child care provider, training workshops, how to become licensed, and more. You can also phone the Children’s Council at 415.276.2900 for more information about becoming a child care provider.
For possible help creating, upgrading, or improving your child care space, the Low Income Investment Fund provides loans and grants to child care providers.
