Child Care - Can I choose any daycare center I want?
Yes, as long as the daycare is willing to participate with the agency you can use them. If the agency doesn't have that center on file, they will need to complete a provider packet and submit a copy of their daycare license (Client must request the packet from their worker and have it completed). The agency cannot approve a center that is not state-licensed or is exempt from licensure.
Child Care - Can I use a family member or home provider?
Yes, you can use either as long as the following conditions apply.
1) A home provider must have a current state license and submit a copy of that license.
