Child Care Services provided an update regarding the proposed combined requirement revisions affecting child care centers, school-age and part-day programs, day camps, drop-in and programs caring for sick children. They mailed a draft of the proposed requirements to programs in September 2012 along with notice of public comment and public hearing locations. Four public hearings were held.
The proposed requirement revisions have gone through the Child Care Advisory Committee, DHS Legal Services, executive and administrative approval and were formally submitted for legislative approval in January 2015. During the Notice of Rulemaking Intent, a request for an additional public hearing was received.
The public hearing has been scheduled for Monday, May 18, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. at the DHS Sequoyah Building, 2400 N. Lincoln Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK Room C-48. Written comments may be submitted up to and during the public hearing by faxing to Child Care Services (405)522-2564.
