Are you a child care provider?

Contact the child care licensing office nearest you for help. They are listed below on this page.

  • Locations marked with an E are also E-Application Processing Offices. If you submitted an e-application, mail supplemental information and forms to the closest E-Application office. Add the CCL confirmation number to all your documents, but you do not need to send a copy of your e-application. You can check your e-application status by logging into your account.

  • Note: to inquire about a 24-hour residential operation (and not a day care operation), use the contact numbers for 24-hour care operations at the bottom of this page.
