A person or program providing child care to any of the following children at any one time that is not registered to provide child care under this chapter, as authorized under Iowa Code section 237A.3:
Is a child care home provider and 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.
Further, Iowa Code Section 237A.19 outlines the penalties of operating a child development home without registering.
If registration is required under section 237A.3A, a person who establishes, conducts, manages, or operates a child development home without registering or a person who operates a child development home contrary to section 237A.5, commits a simple misdemeanor.

A single charge alleging continuing violation may be made in lieu of filing charges for each day of violation.
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.
