Minimum Standards for
Residential Child Care Facilities

The Department of Human Resources is responsible for prescribing and publishing minimum standards for licensing and approving all child-care facilities. The regulations for the operation of child care institutions, group homes, maternity centers, shelter care homes and adjunct homes are titled “Minimum Standards for Residential Child Care Facilities.” The minimum standards must be met by persons responsible for the care of children and by the child-care facilities in order for a license to be issued by the Department.
