Services for Child Care Providers
We provide accredited workshops, programs, tours and story times specifically for childcare groups. All programs are listed on our KidCare monthly postcards, or you can view the KidCare program calendar online. Child care providers can get their names added to the mailing list for postcards by calling (573) 443-3161, ext. 7045 or e-mailing us.
An Educare Resource Center near the children’s area in the Columbia facility offers a reference collection of planning materials for care-providers.
Child Care Aware of Missouri serves as a community resource on child care throughout the state. They work with child care program owners, directors and teachers to improve the quality of their programs. They provide business and civic leaders with information on the value and importance of child care and collaborate with them to make child care safe and enriching for children.
