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.
- As of this time, the Montana Early Childhood Project is not accepting any out of state entities to be approved training sponsors. But, they do accept courses from Child Care Lounge for professional development hours on registry accounts. Students may use an individual training request form. When the student finishes a course, they can enter it on their training tab under edit training and scrolling down until they see the individual request form.
- All requests must be submitted within 3 months 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 the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, Early Childhood and Family Support Division, Early Childhood Services Bureau (CCL) for the specific child care licensing requirements, rules and regulations of your state.
