An important part of choosing child care is the process of interviewing, visiting and observing potential child care providers. It is your right and responsibility to seek as much information as you can in order to choose child care that best meets your family's needs.

While you look for child care please remember:
• The information we collect is very important to give you the best referral possible, so we ask that you please complete all required information.
• All personal information collected is kept CONFIDENTIAL and will not be sold, traded or made available to outside sources.
• This data is also used to assist state and local agencies to understand and plan effectively to address child care needs in our community.

Your referral list:
The referral list you will receive will consist of up to 15 child care providers based on the criteria you entered.

Child care referral services are provided to all persons requesting them regardless of income or other eligibility factors. The names of providers are referrals only and not recommendations. The referrals are based on information provided by the child care providers themselves. Options does not inspect the providers and cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information or the quality of the supervision your child will receive. The choice of your child's care provider is your responsibility.

Options strongly recommends that before placing a child in care, parents or guardians exercise their right and responsibility to review a potential child care provider's licensing history. As a parent or guardian, you have the right to get information about any substantiated or inconclusive complaints about a child care provider that you select for your child. This is a public record and is available at the facility. A more complete file, including complaints or violations for licensed programs in Los Angeles County, may be available at the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing offices listed below:

Los Angeles East Regional Office - (323) 981-3350
Los Angeles Northwest Regional Office - (310) 337-4333
