Child Care Provider Support Services

“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can learn to read, write, or count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child”

 

Quality early care and education programs support a child's optimal development and readiness for success in school. Valley Oak knows the importance of quality child care! Our child care support services assist providers who are starting a child care program or need help running a program.

HOW CAN VOCS HELP PROVIDERS START A CHILD CARE PROGRAM?

 

Valley Oak can help providers with many different aspects of child care! We offer services regarding the business aspect of child care, licensing, start-up procedures, and child care legislation.

WHAT IS THE “TRUSTLINE REGISTRY”?

 

The TrustLine Registry is made up of child care providers who have had a background check by the California Department of Social Services and submitted fingerprints to the Department of Justice. Providers on the registry do not have 1) disqualifying criminal convictions listed on the California Criminal History System 2) reports of child abuse or 3) disqualifying criminal convictions on the FBI Criminal History System. The TrustLine Registry benefits parents and providers! Call Valley Oak for more information on the TrustLine Registry process.

 

HOW DOES TRUSTLINE BENEFIT PARENTS? The TrustLine Registry gives parents one more tool to use when it comes to choosing a child care provider. See How to Choose Child Care for more tips!

 

HOW DOES TRUSTLINE BENEFIT PROVIDERS? Being registered on TrustLine demonstrates to parents you are serious about your profession as a child care provider.
