What is Stage One Child Care?
Stage One CC can help families by reimbursing most or all Child Care expenses when the family meets the requirements of the  program.  Families may be responsible for paying a small portion of the Child Care expense. 
Your family may be eligible to Stage One CC if the Parent(s) are:
  • Living in San Bernardino County,
  • Receiving CalWORKs, and
  • Participating in:
    • A Cal-Learn program (teen parent), or
    • An approved Welfare-to-Work (WTW) activity, or
    • Working.  
*Note:  In a two parent household both parents must be working or in an approved WTW activity.
