Department of Social Services Issues New Guidance on Temporary Waivers for City Non-Licensed Child Care Programs

Cities, counties, and parks and recreation districts can now apply for temporary waivers to operate their non-licensed childcare centers for extended hours to fill the void caused by closed schools and daycare centers

September 9, 2020
California cities have been providing the open space for mental and physical health of their communities, and child and youth programming that is desperately needed for working families. 
 
As school districts across the state prepare for distance or modified learning, cities, including parks and recreation departments, are helping to provide child/youth day and after school programs, and services to support the community’s needs.
 
The California Department of Social Services (DSS), recently released guidance that outlines the process for cities, counties, and special independent recreational and parks districts to request a temporary waiver to extend the hours and times they can operate. Specifically, this guidance outlines the settings of childcare that can be offered under a waiver provided that a city meet some critical health and safety standards and that there is some local coordination.
 
Cities, and parks and recreation districts requested guidance from DSS in August. By expanding the hours of operation for these programs the state can help meet the urgent demand of school districts and working families.
 
Additional guidance was also released from California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which includes information related to cohorts. The CDPH cohort concept is similar to the CDSS child care guidance in regards to group size, and mirrors the child care facility guidance released for schools.
 
The link below offer new guidance to help cities learn how to apply for a waiver to the existing licensed-exempt childcare facility rules: Cities need to work their local Regional Office Director to help review and process their request.
