How to Become a Family Child Care Provider:

Effective December 31, 2016, child care licensing rules require individuals who are interested in becoming a licensed child care provider to complete a pre-licensing orientation training prior to submitting an application for licensure.

The goal of the training is to lay a solid foundation of child care knowledge on which you can plan and build your child care program. The training covers related topics that should be considered prior to beginning the process to become a licensed program.
