On any given day, there are many families accessing child care assistance in order to better their lives and become self sufficient. In order to serve those families,
we rely on you – the child care providers who partner with us, to make a difference in helping us improve the lives of those we serve.
This is where you will learn about the Child Care Subsidy Program administered by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and assess your knowledge of the program.
