Thanks to LCAM I have been able to gain the necessary preparation to be able to offer high quality child care to the families I serve in my program. Networking with other Latinx providers has helped me a lot to exchange information, educate and support each other to continue to grow professionally.

I want to thank the LCAM family for all the help they have given me. I have been able to open my own child care business with the help of the Mentoring Program and the low-cost courses they offer I can say that I have achieved my dream, thank you LCAM for the great work you do!

LCAM is constantly announcing classes that are essential for our license renewal, other classes that improve the provider's qualifications; it also informs us of grants, business management, any changes in childcare regulations, and other topics. Most importantly this organization serves a Spanish speaking community of providers in our own language.
