Training

  • Training resources are available to help you provide the best care possible.

    If you are applying for a license to provide in-home child care, orientation is mandatory. You will be scheduled for orientation after you have submitted a complete application. If space is available, current family home registrants and group home licensees may be able to attend an orientation session as a refresher. Please contact your licensing consultant regarding this option.

    If you operate a child care center, orientation is available several times a year. If you would like to attend an orientation session, please contact your licensing consultant for availability information.

    Presentations used at our orientation sessions are available here:
