Douglas County residents who are interested in learning more about operating a child care facility are encouraged to attend a free orientation meeting at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department.
The meeting will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday in the first floor meeting room at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, 200 Maine.
The meeting will provide information regarding licensing of family day-care homes. Kansas law 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 or for three or more children.
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.
