Issuance of a Child Care Certificate

(1) A certificate shall be issued by CCD when it has been determined the center is in compliance with OAR 414-300-000 through 414-300-440. There are two types of certificates. These are:

(a) A regular certificate which, except as provided in OAR 414-300010(4)(b), is valid for no more than one year; and

(b) A temporary certificate. Not more than one temporary certificate shall be issued to a center in a twelve-month period, but it can be extended to a maximum of 180 days. A temporary certificate is issued when:

(A) The center is in compliance with most requirements;

(B) There are no deficiencies identified by CCD that are hazardous to children; and

(C) The operator demonstrates an effort to be in full compliance.

(2) A certificate is not transferable to any other location or to another organization or individual.

(3) Any changes in the conditions of a certificate shall be requested in writing to CCD and approved by CCD before the condition(s) of the current certificate may be changed. Changes include, but are not limited to, maximum number of children, age range of children, or hours of operation.
