19 CSR 30-62.022 - Exemption of Day Care Facilities

Current through Register Vol. 47, No. 7, April 1, 2022

PURPOSE: This rule defines the basis on which a group day care home or a child day care center may qualify for exemption from licensure.

(1) A day care facility does not qualify for exemption from licensure unless it is under the exclusive control of an entity qualifying for exemption under section 210.211, RSMo.
(2) When a nonreligious organization, having as its principal purpose the provision of child care services, enters into an arrangement with a well-known religious order to provide continuing assistance in the maintenance or operation of a child care facility, the facility is not under the exclusive control of the well-known religious order and does not qualify for exemption from licensure under section 210.211(5), RSMo.
(3) If the person(s) operating the facility claims exemption from licensure, s/he shall file all information requested by the department to make a determination of exemption prior to opening. Facilities may waive the right to apply for exemption and request voluntary licensure. These facilities shall comply with all licensing rules.
