The New York State Office of Children and Family Services Division of Child Care issues regulations that child care providers are required to follow to keep the children and families they care for safe and healthy. These regulations have been put into law to present providers with a strong foundation from which to build their child care program. New regulations went into effect for family-based child care programs in 2014 and day care center and school-age child care changes will go into effect on June 1, 2015.
