Ancillary child cares are child care centers at businesses (such as health clubs and gyms or a store). Child care services are provided while the customers or clients work at the gym, or shop. These child care centers are not licensed or regulated by community care licensing in California. Instead, ancillary child care center staff members who are 18 years of age or older that work in the child care center, must Register on TrustLine.

Employees of an ancillary child care center:

  1. Contact the company that is requiring you to apply to TrustLine
  2. Get the TrustLine Background Check application and instructions from the company

(If you are the owner of an ancillary child care center, and would like to Register your employees with TrustLine, please see the agency section on this website to find out how to set up your company with a TrustLine account).
