Opening a Child Care

Opening a Child Care

Providing Child Care as a Career

Is working with children your calling? Do you like to help parents of young children? Are you ready to make a commitment to provide the high quality child care that is critical to a child’s growth and development? If your answer is YES, El Paso County Needs You!

Providing child care is an exciting career move and benefits our community. The two types of child care below each have different requirements, and both provides you with the opportunity to have a positive impact on the health and development of children and help them to become caring, responsible and successful adults. You will also offer parents the security of knowing their children are in good hands while enabling them to pursue work or school to become better providers for their family.

There are two types of licensed child care:

  • Family Child Care
  • Child Care Centers

Alliance for Kids looks forward to providing you with training, technical assistance, and ongoing support. Start your journey today!
