We provide introductory licensing orientations, monthly support groups, professional development programs and much more!
Professional Development for Child Care Providers.
The Child Care Initiative Project (CCIP) is a training series that has two primary areas of focus: 1) capacity building to increase the quantity of licensed family child care homes and 2) improving the quality of care provided to young children in family care homes. This intensive training series is being offered to participants going through the process to become licensed family child care providers as well as existing child care providers.
To qualify for the CCIP Project, you must be planning to include infants and toddlers in your child care home, and complete the training program of 25 hrs. of Quality Improvement Training and 3 extracurricular activities (e.g. Toy Library visit, Licensed FCC home tour).
The CCIP Professional Development Calendar can be downloaded from the Quick Links sidebar on the right.
Provider Connections is our monthly meeting of child care providers in Napa County. Our service includes connecting providers to each other, professional development, workshops, trainings, quality support, and resources. During this gathering you will have the opportunity to:
Visit the Toy Library and Early Learning Center and learn how it can be a resource for you and the families in your program
Network with other providers
Share your ideas to help develop the plans for future Provider Connections

ALL providers are welcome, we look forward to seeing you!
The Child Care Licensing program of the California Department of Social Services provides oversight and enforcement for Licensed Child Care Centers and Family Child Care Homes. Community Care Licensing also provides quarterly updates available here.
The first step to becoming licensed is to complete a licensing orientation. In 2019, licensing orientations will be held at Community Care Licensing Division in Rohnert Park – see schedules below. Please contact them to register for an orientation. For questions, please call us at (707) 253-0376 x137.
