What is the Santa Clara County Childcare Portal?

Any licensed childcare provider and some license-exempt providers who choose to be part of the SCC R&R Program childcare referral list will have their information stored in the Santa Clara County Childcare Portal*. If you claim your portal account, you will be able to choose which information is made publicly available. By keeping your provider information up-to-date, families can receive childcare referrals by phone, email, in-person or through the Childcare Portal. 

Families can choose to search the Childcare Portal and contact providers directly or they can create an account and the system will contact providers for them. As a provider, you will receive an email when you have a request from a family who chooses to use the Childcare Portal. Once you accept the request within the portal, please contact the family within 2 business days with details about your program.
