Licensed Child Care Centers

Opening a child care center is an opportunity to develop your own small business while providing an important service to families in our community. Caring for children from infancy through school age supports their growing developmental needs and offers them a safe, nurturing, healthy, and stimulating environment.

Centers are licensed by the state to care for groups of more than twelve children. Staff must meet educational requirements. The facility must meet building, fire and zoning codes. Specific adult/child ratios are required in child care centers.
