How To Accept an Educator Invitation

How to Accept and Educator Invitation

The article below will guide you through the process of accepting your emailed invitation to join your child care program. This will allow you to complete your consent form and join the staff roster within I-LEAD, a requirement of all caregivers.

Warning: Each I-LEAD user must have their own email that is not shared with anyone else. I-LEAD accounts are not meant to be shared or gifted as they contain personal information and training unique to that user. Failure to follow this rule may result in tangled accounts and incorrect data on consent forms that can not be reversed.

You must first have or create an Access Indiana with the same email as the invite before accepting an educator invite.

1.) New Hires/Educators: Accept the invitation sent to your email. (It’s labeled as It may be in the junk/spam folder if it’s not in the inbox.)


2.) Click Login and Accept Invitation.


3.) Log into your Access Indiana account. (If you don't have an account with this email yet or get a message that you already have an account but don't recall the password, then use this step-by-step guide first. Then go back to step 1 to login from the educator invite.)


4.) Select your date of birth on the calendar or manually type it (MM/DD/YYYY) and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Then click Submit. (If there's any issues during this step on a mobile device, please login to your email on a desktop computer instead and return to step 1 of this article. The process has to be done start to finish on the same device.)

NOTE: If you are a New I-LEAD User, you will click "SKIP" on the next screen.
Then please skip to step 7 of this article.

5.) Verify the information you entered is correct. If so, click My Information is Correct. If not, press Cancel to go back to the previous page to make the necessary edits.


6.) Enter your phone number and email. Then press Submit.

[Note: If you get a message that "too many attempts" were made, this was likely caused by attempting to merge with existing records in I-LEAD via the "I am an Educator" button before the invite was used. If you've never worked for a child care facility before or turned in consent form, please ignore the message and enter your phone number and email to continue.]


7.) Update the personal information and home address on your profile, then select your "Title”. Most individuals will select “Teacher” as their title. Then click Update Your Profile.


8.) If accepting your invitation was successful, you'll see your provider in the "Providers" section. Find your consent form in the upper right-hand corner to fill out once you have your fingerprinting information.
