Child care licensing support

Sourcewell partners with Becker, Cass, Crow Wing, Douglas, Morrison, Stevens, Todd, and Wadena counties to offer family child care licensing services.

We offer tools and resources to help parents find licensed home daycare, providers access official documentation for maintaining licensing requirements, and counties an alternative solution for dedicated licensure staffing and support.
