ISSUE DATE: 03/2017

For the definition of a provider, see Chapter 2 (Glossary).

CCAP will not pay a provider who lives in the same home as the child.

A licensed individual or a licensed center must have a valid child care license issued by a state or a tribe and provide child care services in the licensing state or in the area under the tribe’s jurisdiction.

A legal nonlicensed child care provider must be at least 18 years of age and not a member of the MFIP assistance unit or a member of the family receiving child care assistance.

CCAP parents have a right to choose their child care provider.

There are 4 different types of providers:

  • · Licensed family child care providers. See Chapter 11.3.
  • · Licensed centers. See Chapter 11.3.
  • · License exempt centers. See Chapter 11.6.
  • · Legal nonlicensed providers. See Chapter 11.9.
