The Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) Family Support Services program helps subsidize child care payments for eligible families throughout the County of Orange. The program is funded by the California Department of Education (CDE), Early Education and Support Division. Subsidized child care is provided via contracts established between OCDE Family Support Services (FSS) and a provider who is an independent contractor selected by the parent. OCDE Family Support Services encourages families to carefully select a provider. Families may choose family day care homes, license-exempt providers, center programs, school districts, or sectarian care. Parents are encouraged to select a child care setting that best reflects their parental and cultural values, meeting the individual needs of their family.
