Upcoming Public Workshop
Posted Monday, September 26, 2016 by Shelly Nye
The Nevada Child Care Licensing section will hold a workshop on Sept. 30, 2016 at 9 am, providing an opportunity for child care providers and the public to give input on proposed changes, including changes to the initial training required for new child care workers and child-to-staff ratios. Among the suggested additional initial training topics are allergic reaction response, preparedness and response to emergencies, and prevention of shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma. The current proposals also include a change to documentation requirements in the event of illness or injury of a child in a facility.
The proposed changes to Nevada Administrative Code Chapter 432A must undergo an extensive review and approval process. For a workshop agenda, a breakdown of the proposed changes and other information, visit the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance Notice of Public Workshops and Proposed Regulations page.
