The L.A. County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Supervisor Michael Antonovich's motion on Tuesday directing the chief information officer and the director of public and social services to work with the state's Community Care Licensing Division to create a child care Internet information website.
The site would be designed to help parents and caregivers make informed choices about choosing child care programs.
The website, which will be based on a similar program in New Hampshire, would allow parents to search for registered Child Care Centers in their neighborhoods and view a summary of any licensing violations incurred by the center and any available corrective actions.
