Strategies

Interpreting regulations & putting them into practice can be challenging. Below are strategies to ensure this component is met:

 

Parent Information

To meet this requirement typically an agency will maintain a posting on their parent bulletin board & a statement in their parent handbook that the Program Refrains from Religious Instruction and Worship

Contractors providing services through family child care home providers must maintain a statement signed by the provider that the child care & development services being provided do not include religious instruction or worship. This is typically found in the agreement for services.
