Health and Safety Inspections for Child Care Providers Offering School Readiness

Federal legislation that reauthorized the Child Care Development Fund includes new health and safety requirements for child care providers that receive CCDF funding.
In late October 2016, Florida's new Health and Safety Checklists and Inspections rule became final. It requires at least one inspection each year for all child care providers offering the School Readiness Program. The inspections began mid-November 2016.
