Douglas County Health Department offering day care orientation

April 2, 2012

Residents of Douglas County interested in learning more about operating a child care are encouraged to attend the April child care licensing orientation meeting at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department.

Orientation is a requirement before an application can be submitted.

The three-hour training will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, in the first floor meeting room at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, 200 Maine

St. in Lawrence. Cost of the training is $20 and payment is required in advance.

The meeting will provide information regarding licensing of family day care homes. Kansas law 65-501 requires that homes be licensed or have a temporary permit when child care is provided away from the child’s own home for one or two children more than 20 hours a week (total time) or for three or more children.

Total time is determined by adding together the time each child is cared for weekly. Licensing is not required when a family member provides care for a relative.

To register for the orientation, call the Health Department at (785) 843-
