The Early Childhood Council of Larimer County is supporting you in your journey to become a licensed Family Child Care Home provider.

We offer support with licensing applications, pre-licensing trainings, and financial assistance. We host Information Sessions where prospective providers can learn more about the licensing process and hear from current providers.
