In the first half of this workshop we will focus on learning how to make your child care facility more sustainable by implementing small changes that will help the environment and may even reduce operating costs.
In the second half we will talk about raising children’s awareness of environmental sustainability in a general and natural way. As community awareness of environmental issues increases, so does the value of implementing environmental programs for children. See what other centers are doing around the world and closer to home. Learn about different resources that will help children connect and embrace the natural world.

Variable schedules are reimbursed for the actual care hours provided that are within the hours authorized. The reimbursement will not exceed the amount billed by the provider or the full-time (FT) or part-time (PT) RMRC listed on the certificate for child care services. CDA will not reimburse for child absences, provider holiday or closure days on a variable schedule. If the full billed/invoiced amount is not paid, the parent is responsible for the difference directly to the provider.
The number of reimbursable provider holidays and/or non-operation days is limited to a maximum of 10 days per fiscal year. Once these allowable limits are exceeded, reimbursement will be prorated for future closure days.
Fees for registration, material and/or insurance may be reimbursed if the current reimbursement amount does not exceed the Regional Market Rate Ceiling (RMRC). Reimbursement of these fees is limited to one (1) per child, per fiscal year and will be made in a single payment when requested on the child’s attendance record.
Note: For providers with programs that have multiple fees in one year or where it has been determined that the reimbursement amount exceeds the RMRC, the excess fees will be the responsibility of the parent.
When childcare is authorized for a total of 30 or more hours per week the Full Time Weekly RMRC will be used. When childcare is authorized for a total of less than 30 hours per week the Part Time Hourly RMRC will be used.
