Leech Lake Licensed Child Care Providers
To improve the quality, affordability and capacity of child care through advocacy, supporting parental choice and expanding & strengthening the child care delivery system.
We promote building community through
partnership, coordination and collaboration.
The Parent Aware Program will initially launch as a three-year pilot that includes licensed child care providers/early educators in three Twin Cities metro locations: the City of St. Paul, north Minneapolis and the Wayzata Public School District.
Child care providers/early educators may volunteer to participate in the program and will have provider support specialists available to help them through the process. Participating programs will receive resources, quality support, marketing materials, and unique opportunities to increase the visability of their programs. Joining on the "ground floor" as the program gets underway will allow educators to proudly demonstrate that they are delivering the best care or are on the road to reaching this excellence.
