Children's Council

At Children's Council, we believe that all families deserve access to quality child care. So every day we help parents understand and navigate their options, and pay for child care that meets their family's needs. Because our city is stronger when children are well cared for, parents can work, and families can succeed. No matter what their situation is, it's easy for parents to get lost in a maze of child care options. Between cost, licensing, program philosophies, and quality, the search for the right child care without the help of a trusted expert can be overwhelming. Children's Council provides one-on-one counseling that helps families understand their options and connect to the care that fits their needs. We also elevate and support the child care profession through training and coaching, for both new and established care providers. Ultimately, our professional support ensures that safe, nurturing child care is readily available to families throughout San Francisco.
