Standards for Licensed Family Day Homes [22 VAC 40 ‑ 111]
Amend Standards for Licensed Family Day Homes to Address Federal Health and Safety Requirements
General Information
Action Summary This regulation provides criteria for the public and Department of Social Services to evaluate the safety of care that children receive in licensed family day homes. The existing regulation, 22 VAC 40-111 in effect since 2010, has undergone one revision in 2013. This regulatory action is proposed to address specific new federal health and safety requirements to be implemented as soon as possible. The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 requires ten health and safety topics to be addressed for providers receiving Child Care and Development Funds. The intent of amending the Standards for Licensed Family Day Homes is to align requirements of licensed programs with requirements for providers receiving Child Care and Development Funds; this includes unregulated and unlicensed programs. Amending the existing regulation to reflect federal health and safety standards will provide additional protections of the health, safety, and welfare of children in care.
