Default Getting licensed in MI?

Hi there! I'm in the beginning process of getting my license in Michigan.

Anyone have any tips or tricks to help the process along?

If you go online to the dhs website, they have a checklist that the worker uses when they're doing the inspection. I printed it out and made sure I was good with all of them--it is more specific than the rule book. Also make sure your paperwork is all good--they are ALL aboout the paperwork!
Where about in MI are you?

A great resource is your local Community Child Care Council. Type 4C's MI into your search engine or find a link from the mi.gov/dhs/childcare website. They were an invaluable resource for me when I was opening my daycare and continue to be with trainings, resourcing, coaching and networking. Good Luck with your new endeavor. I'm in Oakland Cty by the way.
