In 2012, the Department of Early Learning (DEL) will start reviewing child care center licensing rules in Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 170-295. This will be the first substantial update since 2003.
Before we begin reviewing the rules, we wants to hear what you think about the current child care center licensing rules, such as:
- Which rules should change?
- Which rules should remain the same?
- Are there any rules that should be eliminated?
- Should DEL consider any new requirements that are not addressed in the current rules?
DEL is interested in suggestions that are child-centered and evidence- or research-based.
