Welcome to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services Day Care Home Licensing Orientation. The purpose of the orientation is to educate potential day care home providers about the rules and procedures that govern day care homes and the license application process. It's also to help you decide if becoming a day care home provider is right for you and if you meet the licensing requirements mandated by DCFS.

This training includes:

  1. An Eligibility Questionnaire (43 Yes/No questions)
  2. 60-90 minutes of self-paced interactive training
  3. A Post-Training Assessment (10 multiple-choice questions)
  4. A Course Evaluation
  5. A Certificate of Completion (which must be printed at time of completion)

If this is your first visit to the orientation, you must register before proceeding.
If you already created a username and password, you may return to orientation.
