CCDMPL 1 (New Procedure for Child Day Camp Registration)
Child Care Day Camp Manual Procedure Letter No. 1
December 23, 2016
TO: All Child Care Day Camp Manual Holders
FROM: Cynthia C. Dungey, Director
SUBJECT: New Procedure for Child Day Camp Registration

Background: Ohio Administrative Code rule 5101:2-18-02 outlines the process for Ohio child day camps to register with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). Registrants must send the JFS 01258 "Child Day Camp Registration" along with a twenty-five dollar fee to ODJFS each year no later than March 15. Owners of multiple camps pay twenty-five dollars for each, but not more than two hundred fifty dollars total.

New Procedure: Beginning February 15, 2017, Child Day Camps must register and pay the annual fee via the Ohio Child Licensing and Quality System (OCLQS) at OCLQS will assign the owner of each program a new user ID, using the owner's email address as identified in the old licensing system from the previous Child Day Camp Registration.  In this email the owner will receive a temporary password, along with a validation link. Links to register and pay fees will be located on the home page. Owners will then be responsible for:

  • Validating the email address in order to log into OCLQS.
  • Once logged in, assigning access to their employees, if applicable.
  • Completing registrations by March 15, 2017.

Registrations are effective for the period of March 15th through March 14th of the following year. Registration of child day camps issued after March 15th shall be effective from the date of registration through March 14th of the following year. Any paper registration received after the effective date of this letter will be returned.

Form to be Made Obsolete: JFS 01258 "Child Day Camp Registration." This form is being made obsolete because the registration will be completed in OCLQS.
