Welcome to Child Care Information


Attention! The child care provider health and safety training waiver was extended through June 30, 2022.

Instructors may continue to offer lecture components of courses in a virtual classroom environment for the duration of this waiver.

Instructors must continue to offer skills components and perform skills examinations in an in-person setting.

Video recordings of trainings are not authorized under this waiver.

 In response to COVID19, EMSA has reviewed its interpretation of home study, which is prohibited by statute for this training.

 EMSA interprets home study to mean training that takes place in an individual’s home, or through an online format that is not interactive.

 Courses that use an online virtual classroom setting(s) that allow for real-time interaction with the instructor are allowed.

 Skills practice and evaluation must be completed in-person.

 For guidance on class and gathering sizes, refer to CDC, CDPH, the California COVID 19 webpage, and your local government guidelines.
