The state of WI is funding a maximum of 8 hours of technical assistance to each prospective group provider and a maximum of 6 hours of technical assistance to each prospective family provider. As a part of that technical assistance, we offer 2-4 hours of phone and e-mail technical assistance at no cost to potential licensed providers. As part of this technical assistance we review and provide feedback on one policy draft, offering recommendations where appropriate. The group child care pre-licensing visit provided under our contract with the State may last up to four hours and the family on-site visit is up to 2 hours. The focus of the visit is on the lengthy “Initial Licensing Checklist.” During the visit providers are given the license application form and review with the technical consultant items that must be submitted with that application.
Additional, optional consulting services may be arranged to support providers in their preparation efforts and can be arranged through their pre-licensing technical consultant.
