Child care providers serving children who receive funding from the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) are required to meet certain standards of health and safety.

Child Care providers must be able to demonstrate that they meet these requirements prior to the receipt of any CCDF funds. To verify compliance, providers wishing to serve CCDF children, must submit all the required written documentation and pass a CCDF Provider Eligibility inspection.

Please note: It is the responsibility of the provider/applicant to submit all appropriate documentation to demonstrate compliance with CCDF Provider Eligibility Standards. An inspection will not occur until all appropriate written documentation has been received and verified.

If you are an Unlicensed Registered Child Care Ministry and want to participate in CCDF you need to contact your child care ministry consultant.
