Child Care Pre-Licensing Workshops

As of January 1, 2006, the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (NCDCDEE) requires all prospective owner/operators of child care centers to attend a two-day Child Care Center Pre-Licensing Workshop prior to being issued a license to care for children. Visit NCDCDEE’s website for additional information and/or to find a workshop near you. Click here for NCDCDEE’s schedule of Pre-Licensing Workshops

Although not required for licensure, persons interested in opening a family child care home are strongly encouraged to attend a Family Child Care Prelicensing Workshop offered through Child Care Resources Inc. For more information, contact Juanita Strothers-Smith at
