California Launches New Portal for Childcare for Essential Workers

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced that the Department of Social Services has set up a portal for childcare to help parents who are struggling to work while also finding care for their children now at home.

Californians who are in essential sectors of the workforce can go to MyChildCare.ca.gov, type their zip codes onto the interactive map, and then see childcare options and reviews in their area.
