Proposed regulations affecting the child care industry in Nevada will be heard at the Board of Health (BOH) meeting via videoconference Friday, June 5, 2020 at 9:00am.

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.
