Child Care Manual Procedure Letter No. 61
February 8, 2011
TO: All Child Care Center Manual Holders
FROM: Michael B. Colbert, Director
SUBJECT: January 2011 Form Revisions for Licensed Child Care Centers and Type A Homes

This letter is to notify child care center and type A home child care providers that eight forms have been revised and one new form has been developed. Changes to the forms reflect recent revisions to child care licensing rules which improved the process for obtaining an initial license and renewing a current license.

The following is a summary of the changes to forms:

JFS 01235"Sleep Position Waiver Statement" is a prescribed form that has been revised to clarify the age of the infant for whom the form is required.

JFS 01237"Center Parent Information Required By Ohio Administrative Code" is a sample form which has been revised to update the Bureau of Child Care and Development web page address.

JFS 01238"Second Adult Statement for Child Care Centers" is a sample form which has been revised to indicate that it is a sample form and not a prescribed form.

JFS 01246" Child Care Staff Member Orientation and Employee Policy Review Statement for Child Care Centers and Type A Homes" has been a prescribed form for child centers and now is a prescribed form for type A homes as well. The form has been revised to clarify directions for completion by each type of person employed at a child care program.

JFS 01257"License Renewal Notice" is a notice sent to alert a child care program that their license will expire soon and that the renewal application and fee must be submitted. The form has been revised to reflect changes in the license renewal procedures.

JFS 01268"Sample Parent Handbook for Child Care Centers" is a sample form that has been revised to reflect recent child care rule changes.

JFS 01300"Child Day Care Employee Reference" is a sample form that has been revised to remove the choice of "relative" as an allowable type of relationship for the person providing the reference.

JFS 01335"Type A Home Plan Of Operation" is the written plan of compliance for programs seeking a type A home license. It has been revised to correct several section titles and rule references.

A new form, JFS 01207"Parent Handbook Checklist for Child Care Programs" is a sample form which may be used to check that the parent handbook contains all required items.

The electronic versions of the Child Care Manuals are located at: http://emanuals.odjfs.state.oh.us/emanuals. The manuals contain all child care rules, transmittal letters, procedure letters and forms.
