Chapter Information
Description Voluntary Registration is a form of regulation available to family day homes that are not required to be licensed. These homes have four or fewer children in care at any one time, not including the provider’s own child and any children who reside in the home. This regulation sets forth the application requirements; health and background check requirements for providers, caregivers and adult household members; certification procedures for issuance, renewal, denial and revocation of a certificate; and basic provider record and reporting requirements. In addition, the regulation establishes a health and safety checklist comprised of only the most basic health and safety criteria to be used by the provider and the agency certifying compliance with the requirements.
