Subchapter B. Minimum Standard Rule Revisions for Clarity and Consistency

Revisions for Clarity and Consistency

746.301 What changes regarding my child-care center must I notify Licensing about before making the change?

This rule has been amended to add the definition of "child-care location" and to add requirements that Licensing be notified before your center offers a get-well care program or nighttime care or sells or transfers ownership of the operation, which is being incorporated from current 746.303 Must I notify Licensing of changes I make regarding the governing body or director of my child-care center?.

746.303 Must I notify Licensing of changes I make regarding the governing body or director of my child-care center?

Because a permit cannot be transferred to a new owner, this rule has been amended to delete the requirement to notify Licensing within five days following sell or transfer of operation ownership. The requirement to notify Licensing of sell or transfer of ownership has been moved to 746.301(10) What changes regarding my child-care center must I notify Licensing about before making the change?, which requires notification prior to operation changes. This will ensure the new owner is aware of Licensing requirements and can apply for a permit.

746.405 What telephone numbers must I post and where must I post them?

This rule has been amended to delete the requirement to post the address of the nearest Licensing office, because Licensing Inspectors are now mobile workers and not at a particular office; and to clarify the wording of the rule for accuracy.

746.503 Must I provide parents with a copy of my operational policies?

This rule has been amended to clarify that the parent signature for the enrollment agreement and the operational policies may be a signature on one document or several documents (this is being moved from 746.2809(c) Must I have a written discipline and guidance policy?).

746.505 What must I do when I change an operational policy or an item in the child-care enrollment agreement?

This rule has been amended to clarify that employees must be notified of any changes to the center's operational policies (this was previously required by repealed 746.2813 How often must I update my written discipline and guidance policy?) and to clarify the language of the rule.

746.507 Must I provide a copy of my operational policies to my employees? 

This rule is being repealed because it is already clear that operational policies must be shared with employees in 746.901(6) What information must I maintain in my personnel records?.
