San Fernando Daycare Centers

Daycare Centers are operations that provide daycare in a setting other than a private home. They are typically larger and provide a classroom-style format that groups children by age. Most San Fernando Daycare Centers offer structured programming, and many are accredited as providers of early learning programs. California State regulations determine how many adult staff members are required per child, based on the children's age. Infants typically require at least one adult for every three infants. The ratio of children to adults increases with the children's age to a maximum of approximately ten children per adult staff members, though this varies by state. Daycare Centers are usually owned and operated by San Fernando private businesses, non-profit organizations, or religious organizations. Government involvement in Daycare is usually limited to subsidizing Daycare costs for low-income families, though there are some examples of government owned and operated Daycare Centers in San Fernando.

San Fernando Home Daycares
