Child Care Referral & Education

We are committed to improving child care in Shasta and Tehama counties, knowing that the early years of growth and development for every child can deeply influence the quality of the child's whole life. We provide friendly, responsible, helpful and compassionate service and act as a resource for parents, care providers and the community for available information and education services.  

Our dedicated staff work hard to:

  • Link parents with child care providers who meet their needs.
  • Educate parents to make informed choices in child care.
  • Help child care providers get started and succeed.
  • Enhance the professional skills of the provider.
  • Promote good nutrition and health standards in child care.
  • Inform the community about child care issues.
