A Residential Family Child Care is a business located in the provider’s primary residence for children who are not relatives of the provider. A Residential Family Child Care must be located in a single-family or two-family residence. The Residential Family Child Care use must be operated by the person who lives there.
Family Child Care businesses can serve up to 6 children who are not related to the business owner (except in Districts 6 and 10, where the limit is 4 unrelated children).
Some of the City requirements are different than the state requirements. If you comply with the City requirements, which are the most stringent, you will be able to pass the City licensing process.
