Course Title: Child Care Selection 
Trainer: Julie Davis
Timing: 1 hour; Offered One Time Per Semester

Description: Every parent wants their child to be in a supportive, engaging, quality child care environment so that they are healthy, safe, and learning. This also allows parents to be able to return or remain in the workforce. How can we expect parents to choose quality child care, when they may not know what that looks like? This session will provide insight into types of child care available in Iowa, what types of questions to ask a potential provider, what to look for in a quality environment, and we will share important resources for families who are looking to find child care. Parent choice is important and our services/resources are 100% FREE! Come learn all about different child care options for families so you are able to help parents make a great decision on an environment that fits their child’s needs.
