In order to become a certified child care provider, you will need to participate in a Start-Up Meeting either in person or by taking an online course. Start-Up Meetings cover information about the number of children you may care for, the application process, home safety, the services 4-C provides and more.
If you are interested in taking the Start-Up Meeting online course, please contact us.
4-C Certification offers in person Start-Up Meetings throughout the counties that we serve. Make sure to arrive on time as doors close 10 minutes after the meeting starts--late arrivals WILL NOT be allowed into the meeting.
Start-Up Meetings are for adults only; please do not bring children.
