TYPES OF LICENSES

Annual

  1. An annual license is issued when the Center meets all the Requirements for Day Care Centers. An annual license is effective for one (l) year from the date of issue, unless it is revoked or surrendered sooner.

Provisional
  1. A provisional license may be issued when the Department determines that:
A. An applicant is temporarily unable to comply with all of the requirements in the Requirements for Day Care Centers.
B. The effect of non-compliance to any rule or regulation does not present or will not present an unreasonable risk to the health, safety and well-being of the children or staff of the Center; and
C. The Center has a plan of correction that has been approved by the Department.
A provisional license may also be issued when a Center is initially licensed. A provisional license may be issued for up to one year and may not be renewed.

  1. A provisional license may be replaced with an annual license when all of the following conditions exist:

A. The Center corrects the deficiencies related to the requirements in advance of the expiration date of the provisional license and no additional areas of non-compliance exist.
B. Compliance with the requirements has been verified by an on-site observation by a Department representative or by written evidence provided by the Center.
C. All other terms of the license remain the same.

  1. A request to replace a provisional license and to issue an annual license must be made in writing by the Center. If the request is approved, an annual license shall be issued.
