Child Care Initiative Project
The Child Care Initiative Project is designed to recruit and train family child care providers in order to address the shortage of licensed quality child care in Santa Barbara County. Our staff will support and assist you with the licensing process, evaluate your home environment to ensure that it meets licensing standards.
Participation in the project requires that a potential child care provider must attend a total of 25 training hours. We offer these hours through four modules. The training series includes: the business aspects of child care, tax preparation, and best practices in caring for infants and toddlers. Incentives are offered for completion of required training.
