The Department of Health is partnering with the Department of Children and Families to provide registered and licensed family home child care providers, who are on a private drinking water system (typically a well or spring), an opportunity to apply for the chance to be awarded a free drinking water test kit.
The Child Development Division is looking for your questions on the regulations.The Division is currently developing resources for child care providers about the new child care regulations. One of the resources will be a Frequently Asked Questions page on the website for common questions and their answers about the child care regulations.
States, including Vermont, are required to submit a CCDF State Plan, subject to federal approval, to describe how they will meet the new requirements in state child care subsidy programs and quality initiatives. This is a draft of Vermont's plan.
Status of the plan: The division's staff are working to put the final touches on this plan in order to release the most accurate and helpful information to you. Unfortunately this has taken longer than we anticipated. We hope to release the Vermont's plan on Monday, January 25th on our website and through email.
