Family Child Care and Group Child Care Licensing Policy Statement
Number: P-ECC-07



A person may hold both a Family Child Care and a Group Child Care license under the following circumstances:

  • Care does not occur in the same space at the same time
  • Care is not provided by the same caretaker at the same time
  • No child is enrolled in both programs during the same hours
  • The licensee can demonstrate that holding two licenses does not have a negative impact on either program.

Each program's license will state the hours of operation of the program and any limitations on the use of space.

At the time of license renewal both licensing files will be reviewed by each licensor. Renewal visits will be conducted jointly by the family child care and group child care licensors.
