What is the DCF Child Care Provider Portal?

The Child Care Provider Portal (CCPP) is a secure website, available 24/7, where regulated Wisconsin Child Care Providers can manage their child care business using any computer, tablet, or smartphone with an Internet connection.

The CCPP enables child care programs to:

  • Submit background checks on individuals affiliated with the child care program
  • View background check eligibility status and notices
  • View Wisconsin Shares authorizations and payment details
  • Update child care prices (required for licensed centers participating in the Wisconsin Shares program) for the center
  • Send a request to end a Wisconsin Shares authorization for a child who is no longer attending or has never attended the program
  • Report days (or weeks) the child care program will be closed so a parent can request an authorization to an alternate provider during the closure
  • View YoungStar quality rating information and documents
  • View certain Licensing, Certification and Registry details/documents
  • Pay licensing and certification fees using the E-Payment module
