An important message from State Child Care Licensing:

Regulations regarding sanctions, ratios and other issues were originally scheduled to be heard tomorrow at the 3/6/20 Board of Health (BOH) meeting. However, proposed regulations affecting the child care industry in Nevada will not be heard. It is expected that these proposed regulations will be heard at the next BOH meeting, scheduled for June 5, 2020.

In 2017, new Nevada law implemented administrative sanctions for licensed child care facilities. The proposed regulation supplements and amendments of LCB File No. 135-18P and 182-18I 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.

Documents related to the proposed regulations can be found at the Child Care Licensing Public Hearings and Workshops web page.
