Day Care

California laws and regulations allow for the operation of family daycare homes at residential rental property. A prospective family daycare home provider who resides in a rental property, must give 30 days’ written notice to the landlord prior to the commencement of operation of the family daycare home.

Both small family daycare homes (up to 8 children) and large family daycare homes (up to 12 children) can be operated by a resident without the approval of the landlord. A resident can care for two additional children in a large family daycare home, but they must first obtain the written consent of the property owner.
