HB12-1276 - Child Care Licensure Material Waivers

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Child Care Licensure Waivers For Materials Related To A Child Care Center's Curriculum.

The bill allows child care centers (centers) that are subject to child care licensure regulations, including centers that are already licensed, to apply to the department of human services (department) for waivers to use certain materials in conjunction with their curricula (waiver). Centers are required to adopt policies concerning parental notification of possible safety risks of those materials and the training of instructors in the use of those materials. The state board of human services is directed to promulgate rules concerning the criteria for denying waiver requests, as well as an appeals process for centers to utilize if their waiver request is denied. Whenever practicable, the department shall use the same inspector for multiple visits to a center or a group of commonly owned centers seeking a waiver. The department shall not post any negative licensing action related to a center's request for a waiver until the appeals process is final.
