About A CareGiver Network

A Caregiver Network, is a nonprofit organization founded for
the purpose of raising the quality of child care through support and
training opportunities. Effective January 1, 1998, we became a
nonprofit organization registered with the Colorado Secretary of State.
Our membership base is comprised of licensed family child care
professionals, licensed child care center directors/staff/owners, and
early childhood advocates.

Training for child care workers includes:

  • Monthly membership meetings with
    workshop for continuing training hours and opportunities for
    networking (except for the months of July and December).
  • We offer regular classroom courses child care providers are required to keep current, such as:
    • CPR and First Aid
    • Medication Administration
    • Universal Precautions
    • Family Child Care Prelicensing
  • Monthly preschool planning meetings to prepare preschool curriculum for the upcoming month for children in your care.
  • Biannual mini conferences presented through our Hurried Provider Series.
  • Online courses for continuing education toward child care license renewal.
