Help to get your CCV Child Care Certificate

The Child Development Division offers scholarships to help pay for college courses for those working in regulated child care.  The application is on their website.

The Child Care Apprenticeship program in Vermont contracts with CCV to offer 6 college courses related to working in early childhood programs.  These courses are free of charge to Apprentices.  They are also open at a low cost to child care staff who are not enrolled Apprentices, if there is room in the class.

Once you earn your CCV Child Care certificate, apply for a Level IIIA certificate.
