Family Child Care Providers Concerned About New Licensing Draft

June 2024

Family child care providers say the future of their profession is on the line.

The Department of Human Services in April released updated licensing standards for both family child care providers and child care centers. The state agency is now holding public listening sessions on the drafts.

"The current child care crisis is going to look like nothing if this goes through," said Hollee Saville, a family child care provider in St. Michael and the president of the Minnesota Association of Childcare Professionals. For additional information, visit the KSTP website.
