MiRegistry is Michigan’s professional development registry for the early childhood and schoolage workforce. It is where individuals can create an account, register for professional development offerings, and track their education and credentials.

MiRegistry is also the foundation for participation in Great Start to Quality. Individual staff create accounts and go through the membership process, and programs create Organization Profiles to get started.
