Child Care Consultation Program

Join Families First of Minnesota for our third cohort of the Child Care Consultation Program beginning in January. If you are located in Olmsted, Goodhue, Wabasha, Winona, Fillmore, Mower, Dodge, Houston, Freeborn, Steele, or Rice County and are in the process of becoming licensed, newly licensed, or expanding your family child care business, this program is for you!

You will be connected with a Child Care Consultant who will offer technical assistance, connections to local resources, individualized one-on-one coaching, and incentive dollars to help you get started. Network with other providers in your community, acquire tips on running a successful small business and learn how to prepare a quality learning environment.

“I’m so thankful for this program. It is really well thought out and organized. The required tasks are simple and not terribly time consuming. The grant money at the end was so helpful in purchasing some larger, more expensive toys for my child care than I would have been willing to spend out of my own pocket. Now I have new toys and safety equipment, lots of great ideas and some incredible resources to start out my new child care! Thank you so much.”
