Updated Regulations for Home Daycare's in Virginia


I went to a meeting today, about changes that will occur for licensed family (home) daycare in Virginia.  Today, we learned that a lot of us (home daycare providers) will be NOT be able to care for the same amount of children, that we were licensed for initially.  For instance, I am licensed currently, for 12 children.  But, because of new enforcement, my total will be dropping down to possibly 7-8, depending upon zoning.  And, if you would like the max, which is 10 then you will have to get a special use permit, that will cost (approximately) for my area $910.  Oh, did I mention that this goes into effect July 1st.
