To become licensed, a provider must go through:
  • A 3-part background check for every person in the household
  • Rigorous home inspection & unannounced visits from EEC Licensors at least once per year to ensure a healthy & safe environment
  • 10+ hours of continuing education per year
  • Pediatric CPR & First Aid certification
  • Medication Administration training
  • Training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Health & Nutrition

NeighborSchools partners meet or exceed all EEC licensing requirements, and many have 10+ years of professional experience prior to opening their own program.
