A grant recipient receives a free, 14-week course to attend classes Monday through Friday from 9 am until 1 pm. The course provides the required training for starting a licensed day-care facility in her home. Part of the course includes 15 hours study in health and safety, CPR and pediatric first aid, which are required for licensing. Each participant receives a childcare provider pack that includes a free fire extinguisher, smoke alarm and other safety supplies needed for her new business license.
