As your local Resource and Referral agency, the CAPSLO Child Care Resource Connection would like to share the newly released 2015 California Child Care Portfolio, compiled by the California Child Care Resource and Referral Network.

Since 1980, the Network in San Francisco has supported its member Resource and Referral (R&R) agencies while playing a lead role in helping create awareness about child care issues locally and statewide. Every two years since 1997, the Network has published reliable information about the amount of licensed child care and the estimated demand for care in each county. As with prior publications, this 2015 Portfolio is based on data gathered from state funded R&R agencies. The R&Rs obtained information from more than 40,000 child care providers and from a sampling of thousands of parents over a three-month period. To supplement these results, data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the California Department of Finance, the Employment Development Department, and other public and private sources is also included.
