Our goal is to provide families with information to help them understand options for care, and how to choose a quality program that meets their family's needs.
Paying for Child Care
The Alternative Payment program offers child care subsidies to families who qualify for child care services based on income and need.

If the applying adult in the family has never been on aid, or was on aid more than 24 months ago, has a need for child care services, and meets the income requirements, contact the San Diego County Centralized Eligibility List (CEL) at 1-800-521-0560 or visit www.childcaresandiego.com.
We assist parents in becoming good consumers of child care. We want
to help you find the best care possible that meets your child and family needs.
When you invest time and thought in your search, you can find a child care provider who provides a secure, safe, and nurturing environment for your child.
