The goal of the State Licensed Child Care Program is to provide a safe, caring, and academically challenging environment in which children may develop their self esteem, creativity, learning, social skills through the use of age-appropriate activities and materials.
The Department's Licensed Child Care program operates 2 State-licensed child care facilities which provide full day care for pre-school children 2.5 to entry into kindergarten. Jim Gilliam Child Care Center has funding provided by California Department of Education for income eligible families. Ralph M. Parsons Pre-school offers the Los Angeles Universal Preschool Program for children that have turned four years of age on or before December 2.
