Frequently Asked Questions

Which department regulates child daycare licenses?

Child care centers and child care license holders are licensed and regulated by the Care Licensing Division of the State Department of Social Services in California.

Should I hire an attorney for a violation against my child daycare license?

As a professional daycare provider, you are required to upkeep your license to operate a childcare center. It is crucial to hire a licensed defense attorney for their understanding of how the licensing board operates in your state and how to negotiate the process with you to a more favorable outcome and possible restoration to reputation and license.

Why did my child daycare license get denied?

When applying for a child daycare license, a rigorous background check is performed to verify that each candidate is reputable and is of good moral standing. If there is anything on your record that could prove to be questionable, such as being convicted of a serious felony or any drug-related offenses, the application for licensure can be denied.
