Anyone, anywhere is welcome to enroll in one of our online child care classes. If your state does have a training approval process, that information is detailed below. Your state may not specifically approve trainings toward the required hours of professional development that you need each year. If so, you may use these classes! Please note that you may also use these class hours towards 120 hours needed for the CDA certificate.
- Classes can be used in Maine as part of the required annual training hours (30 hours for center providers and 12 hours for family providers). Priscilla Armstrong, MRTQ Registry Director, said, providers are welcome to use online classes as long as they "check with their licensing worker to see if licensing approves of this online training."
- Classes Available: All of Child Care Lounge classes are available in Maine. View the directory of all online classes.
- Upon completion of a class, we will send you a certificate reflecting the class title, student name, hours of training, and date of completion.
- If you are a provider interested in starting an in-home child care program or looking to get started working in the child care field, please contact Maine's Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Child and Family Services, Children's Licensing and Investigation Unit for the specific child care licensing requirements, rules and regulations of your state.
