Activating Your Account

Activating Your Account

The first step for using I-LEAD is to ensure that you have an activated I-LEAD account. Learn more about this process below.

What do I do with my I-LEAD invitation email?

Provider admins with existing accounts in the Child Care Information System (CCIS) receive an automatic invitation via email to join I-LEAD at system launch.

Educators who have been invited to I-LEAD by their site’s provider admin will receive an invitation via email to join I-LEAD.

For either user type, the email includes a link to activate the user account. Follow the steps below to activate:

  • Click the button that says “Confirm Account.” This will direct you to the “Welcome to FSSA” webpage.
  • At this webpage, you can complete your account activation process.

To successfully use the email activation link, users must verify their accounts within three days.

My I-LEAD invitation expired. What do I do next?

If your activation email link has expired, visit to request a new invitation using the email address at which you received your original activation email.

Visit the I-LEAD home page at and click on the text that says, “Received an invite?” This will take you to a page where you can resend the invitation to your email. Educators can also ask your director to resend the I-LEAD invitation.

What if I didn’t receive an I-LEAD activation email?

Educators who are currently employed in a child care program should request that their program admin invite them to the child care program site’s I-LEAD account.

If you are not currently working in a child care program or would like to open a child care business, visit the I-LEAD login page. Then, create a guest account by clicking “Log In” and following the account registration steps.
