Wu Yee's R&R program can personally assist you in your search for child care and help educate you about your options and your rights as a parent or guardian.

Choosing the right child care options for your family can be a stressful process, especially when there are so many things to consider: environment, curriculum, philosophy and of course — safety. And while there are certainly benefits in using online child care searches, there can be major issues if the process is too impersonal or if the information provided to parents is inadequate.

When it comes to your child care search, consider working with a child care Resource and Referral (R&R) who can personally assist you in your search and educate you about your options and your rights.

Wu Yee’s Child Care Resource and Referral program, funded by the Department of Education, is a program designed to educate parents and guardians about the process of selecting child care providers that are a good match for their needs, and empower families with information regarding background checks, quality monitoring and licensing standards.

Did you know?

In addition to interviewing and checking references, parents and guardians can also use TrustLine to obtain background information on child care providers. Trustline is a statewide registry of individuals providing care for children (including license-exempt caregivers) who have already passed a background check. You can contact Trustline to see if a child care provider has already passed a background check, or you may request that a child care provider undergo a background check with fees starting at $135.

All child care providers listed TrustLine registry have submitted their fingerprints to the California Department of Justice and have no disqualifying criminal conviction in California. Some, but not all, TrustLine listed providers have also had FBI criminal record clearance. Learn more at
