Child Care Licensing Notice of Public Workshop

A public workshop is scheduled for Aug. 29, 2019, where you can give feedback on proposed regulation changes affecting the child care industry.

In 2017, new Nevada law implemented administrative sanctions for licensed child care facilities. The proposed regulation supplements and amendments of LCB File #182-18 were generated to bring the Division of Public and Behavioral Health’s Child Care Licensing Unit into compliance with this legislation. The necessary supplements and amendments include:

  • A complete framework for grading facilities and applying sanctions;
  • Ratios, trainings, and mandated reporting;
  • Director qualifications and designated operator qualifications to help build transparency; and
  • Clarity of standards to help ensure provider compliance.

The public can attend the Aug. 29 workshop at locations in Las Vegas and Carson City. Documents related to the proposed regulations are linked below or at the Child Care Licensing Public Hearings and Workshops web page:
