Legally Exempt Enrollment Services

The Child Care Council provides assistance and support for legally-exempt (informal) caregivers. Legally-exempt (informal) caregivers provide child care for families receiving subsidies and are exempt from the family child care licensing process by caring for no more than two non related children fulltime. If a provider is caring for children part-time, up to three hours or less, then there is no limit of un-related children.  When care is provided for more than three hours, the total number of related and un-related children cannot exceed eight.
