22VAC40-185-20 Section B

If this new section mean programs housed in elementary schools no longer subject to inspections or approvals, is there an opportunity for a program to opt out of that? Our current programs do not need to be licensed, however, we choose to be so that we have someone looking over our shoulders letting us know what we need to improve on and making sure we are taking the best care of the kids in our programs. Will this still be an option as I want our programs to continue to be monitored. If this is still an option, I believe this should state that.
