AN ACT EXEMPTING CERTAIN NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS THAT OPERATE DROP-IN PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN FROM THE STATE'S CHILD DAY CARE LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS

SUMMARY: This act exempts from daycare licensing requirements child daycare services administered by the Cardinal Shehan Center in Bridgeport, as long as the center informs the enrolled children's parents and guardians that its programs are not licensed by the Department of Public Health (DPH) to be daycare service providers. It does this by adding the center to a list of other exempt programs and organizations, such as boys' and girls' clubs. By law, DPH regulates and licenses child daycare centers and group and family daycare homes.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2011
