Child Care Provider Certification

Quality child care homes are needed in the community to meet the needs of working parents. There are two methods of becoming a family child care home:
  • Voluntary Registration Program - This allows family child care home providers to keep up to four children. A representative for the Voluntary Registration Program can be reached at 757-622-9268.
  • Licensed Family Child Care Homes - Providers may be licensed to care for five or more children and may charge a higher rate. The Peninsula Licensing Office's phone number is 757-247-8020.
