New Regulations & Comprehensive Background Check Info-Session (FDC & GFDC)
November 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmNo cost to attend
Syracuse Regional Manager, Tina Cook, will join us to present vital information about the Comprehensive Background Check requirements and information about significant, new OCFS regulations that are already in effect and apply to your program now. This info-session is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the regulatory changes and have the opportunity to ask questions.
OCFS requires all child care providers, employees, volunteers and household members age 18 or over in NYS to undergo Comprehensive Background Checks. Changes effective 9/25/19, impact every child care provider and program. Individuals who completed all NYS OCFS required background checks prior to 10/1/19 will need to be re-cleared from 10/1/19-9/30/20 under the schedule set forth by OCFS based on the individual’s birthday.
Additionally, OCFS amended Child Care Regulations effective September 25, 2019. Changes relating to nutrition, transportation, safe sleep practices, training, staff qualifications, and pets may affect you and your program. Child Development Council’s Molly McGriff (CCR&R Director) and New Registrar Dawn Thornton will be in attendance.
