Free & Reduced Child Care

The City of Pacifica offers free or reduced-cost childcare to families who qualify. Sliding scale fees, based on income, are available for families that meet the income and need eligibility of our subsidized program. Funding for the subsidized component comes through the State of California Department of Education who also establishes the eligibility requirements for the program.

The current (2014-2015) income ceilings for all of the city subsidized programs are:

Family Size and Income level


Not more than $3283 Gross











All income levels are gross income, before taxes and deductions are taken out. Space can be limited and slots will be filled on a first-come basis.

Interested families should call Tracy at (650) 738-7388 or email her at gilbertt@ci.pacifica.ca.us for more information.
