Office of Child Care Licensing (OCCL)

The Office of Child Care Licensing (OCCL) is responsible for the licensing and monitoring of child care programs in the State of Delaware. In 2020 it moved from the Division of Family Services within the Department of Services for Children, Youth and their Families (DSCYF) to the Delaware Department of Education (DOE).

My Child DE is a user-friendly website that brings together resources to help families, providers and other caretakers make informed choices for the children of Delaware. The goal of My Child DE is to help these groups feel welcome, informed and empowered to engage, learn and take the next steps needed to support children.
