An exciting new way to share important information about your program with Minnesota families.

Special Note: The Provider Business Update is underway! Minnesota is once again surveying all licensed child care providers to collect important information. Details below.


Help Families Make Informed Choices
Our new Update Tool is the fastest and easiest to way to complete the Provider Business Update and update your public profile.* In just a few short minutes, you can update your contact information, hours of operation, and – for the first time ever – share the number of current, age-specific openings you have.

The best part? You can update this information as often as you’d like!

More than 100,000 people are using each year, so keep your program’s information current.

*You do not need a Parent Aware Rating to use the Update Tool.


Influence Policies in Minnesota
The information we collect during the Provider Business Update, especially rate data, is essential in helping compare child care costs and subsidy rates in Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). You’ll also influence other important program and training policies. It’s your opportunity to have a voice!


Activate Your Account Today
To activate your Update Tool account, all you need is a computer or mobile device with Internet access, your program’s license ID, and a current email address. Once you activate your account, you’ll have immediate access to information displayed in your profile.
