Child Care Committee

ND CHILd care Professionals Portal

The new North Dakota Child Care Professionals website launched with funding through Vision West ND. The Strom Center at DSU developed the portal because of one of the issues identified in the Vision West ND Regional Plan for Sustainability. These issues identified a need for child care in western North Dakota and throughout the state. The portal delivers all the information an individual would need to get started in the child care related field.  The portal includes all the tools and contacts needed, including licensing information, childcare training, forms and regulations.
