Maintaining Your Child Care License
Annual Training Calendar: There are many opportunities and resources to support a Child Care Provider’s ongoing professional development. Children’s Resource & Referral conducts regular workshops/trainings as well as an Annual Child Development Conference.
Health & Safety Requirements & Reimbursements
A licensed child care provider must have current CPR and First Aid Certification that is EMSA approved. For more information on CPR & First Aid classes please contact Children’s Resource & Referral.
Children’s Resource & Referral of Santa Barbara County can assist child care providers with the cost of obtaining and renewing CPR/Pediatric First Aid and the Health & Safety Certifications. Providers may apply for reimbursement; approval is contingent on funding availability.
To apply simply download the application from the link below, and mail it in with a copy of your receipt(s), a copy of the front and back of your card(s) verifying the class was conducted by an EMSA Certified Instructor.

Marketing Your Business
In most instances, child care providers are small businesses. You need to market your business as any other small business in our community. Advertising through the yellow pages of the phone book, local newspaper ads, and radio are all good methods. Business cards and flyers are highly recommended.
When parents are seeking child care through the Resource & Referral Program, we may provide them your Family Child Care Program information. However, once we give them this information it is up to the parent to make the initial contact with you. Although we will update our Provider Database regularly, it is up to you to keep us up-to-date on available openings or any changes to your Program.
