All providers are welcome to attend the entire session, but each hour will be dedicated to specific licensed facilities as follows: 

  • 9-10 a.m. - Licensed day care homes and group day care homes. 
  • 10-11 a.m. - Child care centers and preschools. 
  • 11 a.m.-noon - School age and drop-in programs.
