Childcare Providers

As childcare providers parents place their trust in you to protect the precious lives of their little ones.  However, accidents can and do happen, even in the safest and most prepared childcare businesses.  So whether you are just starting out as a childcare provider or you are a seasoned provider, CPR and First Aid training is not only a good idea, it is required. NSTS classes are approved by the Iowa Department of Health Services and Iowa Child Care Resource as a provider of First Aid and CPR training.
