2020 Child Care Regulation Changes Training for Child Care Providers and Question and Answer (Q&A) Sessions
The Child Care Facility Regulations were approved by the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) on Oct. 15, 2020, and will take effect Dec. 13, 2020. Over the past two years, OCDEL has released these changes as policy updates to align with the amended facility regulations. Programs who have been implementing these OCDEL policies will not experience any changes and should have limited updates to operations. To support child care programs in their understanding of these new regulations, the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) will be sharing the updated Certification Regulations Training Video for Child Care providers at 9:00 am on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020. The Training link will be shared with all providers via email and available on YouTube on demand.
To support implementation and answer providers’ questions, OCDEL has scheduled the following Live Training and Q&A Sessions on Dec. 1, 2020. Please only register for the session for your region and / or provider type. Registration is required and space is limited. Please Note: These sessions are for current child care providers only. Interested stakeholders are encouraged to view the recorded video but NOT to register for the live Q&A session due to limited capacity.
