Family and Group Family Child Care Regulations Adopted Today

The revised family and group family child care regulations will appear in the State Register today, October 30, 2013.  The revised family and group family child care regulations (413, 416, 417) have been adopted and will go into effect on May 1, 2014.  This six-month lag period is built into the process to allow providers the time they need to become familiar with and come into compliance with the changes made to the regulations. 

The revised regulations offer improved health and safety standards as well as increased clarity and organization. 

The Office of Children and Family Services has scheduled a statewide child care provider videoconference on November 14, 2013 to introduce changes and other learning opportunities will follow.
