Please note: A home providing child care to more than 6 children at one time is required to be registered as a Child Development Home (CDH).
A summary of the basic requirements regarding the number of children who may be served by a Child Care Home (CCH) provider that is not registered is as follows in Iowa Code Section 237A.3:
"1. A person or program providing child care in a child care home is not required to register under section 237A.3A as a child development home. However, the person or program may register as a child development home.
2. If a person or program has been prohibited by the department from involvement with child care, the person or program shall not provide child care as a child care home provider and is subject to penalty under section 237A.19 or injunction under section 237A.20 for doing so.
3. The location at which the child care is provided shall be a single-family residence that is owned, rented, or leased by the person or program providing the child care. For purposes of this subsection, a “single-family residence” includes an apartment, condominium, townhouse, or other individual unit within a multiple unit residential dwelling, but does not include a commercial or industrial building that is primarily used for purposes other than a residence."
Having accurate information on your child care program in the CCR&R database allows us to assist in marketing your child care program to parents looking for child care. To match your program to the needs of families we need to know important information like hours of operation, ages served, changes in phone numbers or email address. Update your program file here.
CCR&R strives to help providers create unique environments that allow children to develop and grow in their own way while focusing on the provider’s strengths, education and skills.
