Confidentiality Policy 

The principle of confidentiality is maintained in all programs, departments, functions and activities. The very fact that an individual is served by this nonprofit will be kept private and confidential. 

Disclaimer 

Please keep in mind that the Family Development Center's Child Care Network can not recommend one child care provider over another. We list any child care provider who has a license in good standing, but licensing is done by the Colorado Department of Human Services, not by us. We do not do any monitoring of the quality of care provided, and it is very important that you, as the parent, carefully interview and visit each provider before making a decision.
