Find the most updated rule language on the ELD calendar. Note: Rule language is draft and subject to change.
Summary: The Certified Child Care Centers Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) was created to gather valuable feedback on proposed rules and identify financial and equity effects that might result from the proposed updates. The rules will be implemented on January 1, 2024. In the last decade, there have been many changes in licensing and health and safety practices that are not reflected in the current CC rule set. The updates to the certified center rule set include updates to align with the best practices in the field and remove barriers for child care providers and staff to potentially increase child care capacity.
Process: The ELD has initiated this rule change in response to feedback from the field. After completion of the listening sessions, a community rule revision workgroup was convened to develop rule language to address the barriers identified in the listening sessions. Members of the workgroup identified several fiscal and operational impacts. OCC made modifications of draft rules to remove or minimize these impacts. The Rulemaking Advisory Committee will be held in April and May of 2023. Selection will include representatives from across the state, including those from small businesses/child care centers.
