Free workshop on becoming a licensed child care provider to be held at OSU Extension Service
On Tuesday, July 16, from 1-4pm, Family Care Connection, the Child Care Resource & Referral in Lincoln County, will hold a Child Care Overview session at OSU Extension Service, 29 SE 2nd Street in Newport. This class is for individuals interested in becoming Registered Family Child Care providers. The class will cover the rules and regulations for state registration, the business aspects of child care, information on quality child care, and information about agencies that offer resources to child care providers. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about providing child care.
Our workforce includes a very high number of working parents and child care is essential for them to be able to go to work and keep their jobs. In addition, research shows the first years of life are critical to the overall healthy development of children. Family Care Connection offers trainings, consultations and other resources to child care professionals to enable them to support early childhood development and school readiness. Family Care Connection also helps connect child care professionals with the families in our communities that need child care.
