Hello,

I am currently in the process of getting a DCFS license in IL. I sent in medical/background check and blue print of the house. Called the rep couple times to schedule a first visit, but now it looks like he wont come in until he gets the:
1. contract including due diligence and requirements and expectations for parents
2. hazard protection plan
3. emergency fire evacuation plan
4. tornado drill plan

I thought these only needed to be shown at time of first visit. Maybe something changed.

Anyway, my question/request was for anyone who is already licensed in IL, could you please share an example of what an emergency/tornado/hazard plan looks like? I have no idea how extensive it needs to be but afraid this process will get stuck until the Rep gets what he wants, which I donít even know what exactly he is looking for.

Someone told me a while back IL used to provide with like a sample daycare packet.. but not anymore.

Please help

Thanks,
Julia.

hi - where in IL are you? I am in the process with licensing too.

I didnt get a sample packet either. Here is what I did:

hazard plan - explained that I live in a quiet residential street, talked about the potential hazards in the home (cleaning supplies in cabinets) and what I have done to make it child safe (added locks), mentioned my pets are all innoculated for rabies.

emergency fire plan - Google home childcare fire plans and you will get lots of ideas. I just went through those and made a bullet point of what I would do

tornado - same as the fire plan except that in this case we would meet in the 'safe room' (basement bedroom)

good luck!

all the forms you can use, contract. Not for illinois in particular though.
