Health & Safety Requirements


The Child Care and Development Block Grant, the federal law that sets the parameters from which state legislation is written, does not have any minimum health and safety requirements. The law calls only for:

  • The prevention and control of infectious diseases (including immunization);
  • Building and physical premises safety; and
  • Minimum health and safety training appropriate to the provider setting.
