We met with Violet in November 2020 after she reached out inquiring about the REACH/QE and Licensing programs we offer to become a child care provider. After consulting and identifying Violet’s goals to stay home with her child, she also recognized the need for affordable child care in her hometown of Mead, a designated Child Care Desert. This sparked Violet to begin her licensing journey to become a CCCAP child care provider. After overcoming the different setbacks due to zoning and the various city inspections she encountered, she submitted her documents for approval in September 2021.
Through our partnership with United Way, Violet received different child care provider training and coaching through the application process. The Weld Child Care team worked with Violet to become a CCCAP provider to be able to provide affordable child care.
Violet is now a CCCAP child care provider and is in a position to provide quality care for up to six children. This increases her earning potential, and she’s eligible to apply for improvement grants through Weld County Early Childhood Council. Currently, Violet can provide child care to families who qualify for CCCAP.
