A daily record of attendance from children attending child care programs must be recorded on a daily basis on an ICES “Attendance Record”. This document is one that ICES issues to the child care provider/program each month for each child attending their child care program.
Attendance Records are due to the ICES office by the 5th day of the month for care that was provided in the previous month. This record serves as the child care program’s invoice necessary for payment of child care services rendered. All Attendance Records must be complete and signed by both the provider and parent to verify attendance as correct. Reimbursement (payment) for child care will be processed within 21 calendar days from the date ICES receives a completed Attendance Record.
Child care reimbursement is determined by the Regional Market Rate (RMR) as established by California Department of Social Services. The rate of payment will be up to a maximum allowance as set by regulation and according to the RMR based on the child’s certified hours of need for child care.
