The Northwestern State University Child and Family Network will hold a workshop on how to become licensed in child care by the Louisiana Department of Social Services. The seminar will be from 6-9 p.m. on March 5 at The Learning Center for Rapides Parish in Alexandria. Get information from the Bureau of Licensing about Class A regulations. There will also be representatives from area zoning, the State Fire Marshal, and the State Health Department to inform you of their regulations for child care programs.

This workshop will be of interest to anyone thinking about opening a child care center, or to anyone who has questions for these regulatory agencies or the Small Business Development Center.
