YMCA Resource and Referral Agency

The YMCA Resource and Referral Agency works to support families in their search for child care providers across San Diego. CDA does not refer childcare providers, so parents might not know that you offer Alternative Payment. As a licensed provider participating in the Alternative Payment Program, you are required to have your current rate sheet and any applicable discounts, or scholarship policies on file with them so they can easily refer any parent who needs a provider.
