Child Care Bulletin Board


The UCSF Child Care Bulletin Board is provided as a campus service. We primarily post listings for share care and families recommending nannies/sitters. To view and/or post to the board, please visit our new Child Care Bulletin Board on Chatter (MyAccess login required).

If you are thinking about joining or creating an in-home learning pod in San Francisco, please read the S. F. Department of Public Health’s Guidance for Learning Pods.

For information on background checks for nannies and sitters, please visit TrustLine, the in-home caregiver screening program administered by the California Department of Social Services.
