Current Events


May 21 - The Child Care Program Office (CCPO) has received additional clarification and instruction from the Federal Office of Child Care regarding the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) annual on-going health and safety training requirement for child care providers. As a result, the CCPO conducted informational meetings on May 14, 15, and 16 regarding proposed program changes to the Child Care Licensing Program.
