All licensed child care providers can be listed on My Child Care Plan and be found by families searching for child care. Providers can always contact their local child care resource and referral (R&R) agency to confirm and update their referral information. Here is a directory of local R&R's in California. Providers who are in the pilot areas, can claim their provider pages and update their information inside the provider portal.
