If you are interested in providing child care in your home, the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department is having a meeting about licensing.
The meeting will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine, in the first-floor meeting room.
The meeting will provide information regarding registration and licensing of family day care homes.
Kansas law requires that homes be registered or licensed when child care is provided away from the child’s own home for one or two children more than 20 hours a week total or for three or more children. Total time is determined by adding together the time each child is cared for weekly. Registration or licensing is not required when a family member provides care for a relative.
To register for the meeting, call the health department at 843-3060.
