Family Child Care Provider
Kris Barbeau is a licensed family child care provider in Wichita, Kansas. Kris is a member of the Home Grown Licensure Work Group.

"I feel that the way the licensing systems could be better is if the reports would include strengths that the provider has and their years of experience and their years of no violations. This would show a more balanced view of who I am and how I care for kids."
