Yolo County Child Care Subsidy Program

City of Davis Child Care Services
600 A Street
Davis, CA 95616
This income-based program administers several different child care subsidies for parents who are working, seeking employment, in training, or attending school in Yolo County. Child care must be provided within Yolo County by a licensed or legally exempt child care service. Additional funding may be available for families with children in need of protection from abuse, neglect, or exploitation, children whose special needs cannot be met without the provision of child care, or children whose parents are incapacitated and cannot provide adequate care.  Applications are accepted throughout the year, and place your name on the Yolo County Centralized Eligibility List (YCEL) waiting list for all grants administered through this program and for which you may be eligible. Placement on the waiting list is based upon priorities mandated by each program, typically income-based and need for care. It is important to notify the program of any changes in family status to reassess your position on the YCEL.

The Yolo County Subsidy Program is funded through the Child Development Division of the California Department of Education with state and federal grants.
