The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department is offering an orientation meeting about child care.
The meeting will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday in the first-floor meeting room at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, 200 Maine.
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 for more than 20 hours a week, 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 orientation, call the health department at 843-3060.
