Child Care Provider Professional Development

Did you know that 85% of a child’s intellect, personality and social skills are developed during the first 3 years? Do you want to know more about your baby’s development and how you can help her or him learn and grow?

As part of its education and school readiness focus, United Way of Weld County provides child care provider professional development opportunities. All licensed child care providers must complete a specified number of hours of professional development each year in order to maintain licensure. Local community colleges help child care providers meet these requirements and provide the opportunity for participants to earn college credits; this program compliments these efforts by offering child care provider training for free or low cost and at evening classes.

Trainings are available to all child care providers, focusing primarily on Weld County. Regular classes are held on weekday evenings and weekends. Annually, United Way hosts the Love to Learn Series, an event during which you can earn up to four hours of professional development. 

Child Care Provider Professional Development each year hosts child care provider professional development trainings. Most include speakers from Colorado higher education, presenting early childhood care research findings and best practices.
