At BANANAS, our goal is to encourage, coach, and support those in the child care field and those who aspire to become child care providers. Through the CCIP (Child Care Initiative Project) program, we are able to assist child care providers in establishing a business and getting licensed, and through the QRIS (Quality Rating and Improvement System) program, we can support providers by offering information on maintaining and improving standards.
Additionally, BANANAS offers these key services to child care providers:
- Child Care Licensing
- Child Care Community Job Listings
- Provider Programs & Services
- Provider Handouts
- Play Briefs
We also provide educational workshops as well as health and safety trainings, some of which are required for licensing.
