Child Care Information Services

Becoming a Registered/Licensed Child Care Provider

With more parents entering the work force, child care is becoming a rapidly growing career choice among people who have a love for children. Working parents need to know that their children are receiving care from child care providers who are creative, patient and tender in a safe atmosphere that promotes positive well-being. Child care is a partnership between parents and child care providers. As partners, each has a responsibility to a common goal, the well being and development of children.
