JCCCA Monthly Meeting and Trainings:

Come join us at our monthly meetings, and bring a dish to share! After a short informative business meeting, a potluck dinner is served. Vendors with provider and child care related products are available for shopping. Following dinner, a training is presented with quality speakers. 1 1/2 to 2 hours training credit are given at each meeting. These credits meet the Office of Early Childhood licensing renewal requirements.
