OFA Fiscal Note

The amendment could result in savings to the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) to the extent that fewer entities are subject to child day care licensing requirements. The amendment expands the definition of child day care services that are not considered as such for the purposes of licensing by removing the specification that the administering agency or department be located in a public school building.

The amendment also results in a revenue loss associated with fewer entities subject to licensing fees. The child day care center fee is $500, while the group day care home fee is $250. Both fees support a four-year license. The municipal agencies or departments affected by the amendment would experience a corresponding savings.
