Standards for Licensed Child Day Centers [22 VAC 40 ‑ 185]
Action:
Adopt New Standards for Licensed Child Day Centers
 
General Information
Action Summary Standards for Licensed Child Day Centers provide criteria for the public and the Department of Social Services (DSS) to evaluate the safety of care that children receive in licensed child day centers. The existing regulation, 22VAC40-185 (formerly 22VAC15-30) in effect since 1993, has undergone seven revisions between 1996 and 2012. It is the intent of this revision to address and update the regulation’s structure and format and provide clarification where burdensome and confusing language makes it difficult for the public to interpret the regulation in the way intended.
