Licensed Exempt Providers

  • License Exempt Providers

    License exempt (formerly known as unlicensed) Child Care Providers are adults, age 18 or older, who are enrolled to provide child care for up to six children at a time.  License exempt providers can provide care in their own home or the child's home if they are related by blood, marriage or adoption as a:

    • (Great) Grandparent
    • (Great) Aunt or Uncle
    • Sibling (only if the provider and the child do not live together).

    License exempt Child Care Providers who are not related to the child can only provide care in the child's home. You must meet requirements and apply to become a license exempt provider in order to receive assistance payments for a child in your care.
