Southeast KANSASWORKS, in partnership with the Bourbon County Workforce and Entrepreneur Resource Center (BWERC), is offering assistance to help unlicensed home childcare centers pursue licensing through the State of Kansas. This program provides financial assistance with application fees, fingerprinting, and other associated costs with compliance with state licensing guidelines. Participants may also qualify for incentives to assist with the costs associated with safety and other required equipment for their homes. In addition to the resources offered to unlicensed providers, Southeast KANSASWORKS is also committed to help currently licensed childcare providers with the costs associated with continuing education that is required for ongoing licensing requirements.
A Southeast KANSASWORKS staff will be present at the BWERC building, 17 S. Main, every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. Staff will be able to help childcare providers navigate the licensing process, as well as the continuing education credits needed for currently licensed providers. Additionally, staff will be able to help local job seekers and employers with the array of free services we offer.
