Child Care Facilities Enforcement Process

The Bureau of Child Care Licensing uses progressive enforcement when evaluating concerns at facilities. Several areas are reviewed to determine what steps need to be taken when a facility cannot meet substantial compliance.

Factors that are considered include: Surveyors work with facilities to assist in understanding why deficiencies have occurred and participate in the resolution to help the provider develop a plan that explains how these issues will not happen again.

Options that are available to the Department are as follows: The types of enforcement actions used by the Department are determined by analyzing the scope, severity and frequency of the deficiencies found. Once those elements are identified, the Division Enforcement Team determines the most effective actions for the facility to reach substantial compliance.
