What do I have to do to become a licensed provider?
You must attend an orientation session, get a physical, submit 3 references, and prepare for a licensing visit by "kiddie proofing" your home and making necessary preparations for emergencies. Background checks must be completed on you, any other person living in the household who is age 13 or older, and alternative care providers. In some cases there must be a fire marshal inspection. To begin the licensing process, call 763-682-7485 or 800-362-3667, ext. 7485.
