“As a Licensed-Exempt Child Care Provider, the pilot METC apprenticeship program has helped me a lot. I have been able to complete all my classes and apply for the additional 20% increase while I was waiting to become licensed. I now know how the process works because of the information received in this program. I’m so grateful for these classes, and the time my mentor took to make sure I was on the right track. I really appreciate this program, and I hope other providers will get the opportunity and experience that I got from METC.”
