Primary Information for Provider 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 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 view the Child Care Center Orientation Schedule or contact your licensing consultant for availability information.
