Community Child Care Forums

The Community Child Care Forums give child care providers an opportunity to meet DCYF Leadership from Licensing and Early Learning, connect with local Child Care Licensing Administrators and Licensors, and Early Learning team members, and learn about updates and opportunities, and share experiences through questions or discussions. These forums are open to Licensed Child Care Centers, Licensed Family Homes, Outdoor Nature Based, School-age Providers, including Certified providers who may be located on tribal lands.

The Community Child Care Forums aim to: 
•    Strengthen relationships between providers and the agency.
•    Allow providers and DCYF to share what is going well.
•    Foster opportunities for ongoing collaboration.
