Red face Daycare Orientation

Hello everyone, so far I have done everything except my cpr class (which Iím doing this weekend) needed to get my license! I was wondering after everything has been sent in that you need, how long does it take for you to get to go to orientation to get your license?
Im just trying to get an idea of how long till I can actually start caring for children. Thanks also Iím in Michigan if that matters!

Have you had your home inspection? That was my longest, because they had to come back twice while I fixed things.

No I have not! I was under the impression that they come within 90 days after you get your license? Is this not true?

Have you read your list of requirements for your home? Our condensed one is 16 pages long. The one with explanations is 160 pages long. I had to pass all of it.

Weirdest was that screws out of the top of our swing set couldn't protrude more than a dime width from their nut. We had to use the metal grinder (thank goodness we already had one) and grind down the machine screws.

We had indoor and outdoor inspections.

Nope. I'm in Utah. But let me tell ya...if a kid in Lansing trips over something and breaks a leg...pretty soon there's a new rule we have to follow here. I think it's about the same in every state. Not the same rules, but lots of them.

Iím in MI, near Lansing! When I opened, I had my orientation in December and my inspection was almost at the 90 day mark. They hold orientations at certain times, but will let you know once you submit all of the paperwork. If you are family, you can care for children right after orientation, before the inspection. If youíre group, you have to have the inspection first before enrolling any kids.
Do you know about the technical assistance manual? It goes over each rule in more detail! You can find it on the LARA site!

Ok awesome! Thanks for the information! I have printed off the list that the inspectors go by but I donít know if I printed out one that goes into detail?? Iím going to go and check.

As of Monday or Tuesday they will have all my paperwork so Iím wondering how long it will take them to set me up for an orientation?
Thanks to everyone helping me out and giving me advice! I am so excited to Embark in this next journey in my life and be able
