Family Child Care Home Licensing

Del Norte County Department of Health & Human Services issues Family Child Care Home (FCCH) licenses for the State of California’s Community Care Licensing Division.  A person may apply for and must meet all requirements in order to be issued a license to operate a FCCH.  A FCCH is any home where the caregiver, in their own home, provides care and supervision for infants & children while the parent or guardian is away for periods less than 24 hours a day and the caregiver has control of the property.  Control of the property means the legal right to enter, occupy, and maintain the operation of the home as verified by documentation.
