Becoming a Licensed Child Care Provider

If you are interested in opening a Licensed Family Child Care Home, a Licensed Group Home or a Licensed Child Care Center, the first step is to take the free Online Child Care Licensing Orientation. The purpose of this orientation is to provide potential licensed child care providers an overview of the licensing process so that you can decide if becoming a Licensed Child Care Provider is the right choice for you. The orientation will take approximately one hour to complete. At the end of the orientation, if you wish to begin the licensing process you will be asked to submit your contact information. An application for licensure will be mailed to you at the address provided.
