|Child care class to be held in Yuma|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
More licensed family child care providers are needed in Northeast Colorado. Licensed child care providers allow parents to work outside the home while their children are being cared for in a safe place. Child care providers are also able to make a good income for their family while staying home with their children or grandchildren.
Colorado licensing of family child care providers helps make sure rules for health and safety of children are being followed. While the licensing process can sometimes be confusing, the Northeast Colorado Child Care Resource and Referral can help people who want to become a licensed child care provider.
They have state licensing packets, training information and answers to questions people might have about getting licensed.
Northeast Colorado Child Care Resource and Referral will be holding a state approved pre-licensing class in Yuma March 19 and 26.
This two day class is part of the training requirements for those people interested in obtaining a family child care provider license.
If you have questions about becoming a licensed family child care provider or would like to sign up for the upcoming pre-licensing class, contact Sheila Anzlovar or Claudia Strait at Northeast Colorado Child Care Resource and Referral at 970-848-3867.
