Effective July 1, 2014, prospective new providers must meet all health and safety requirements as described below. Existing providers must meet Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) health and safety requirements by December 31, 2014.

Child care supports for WFNJ/TCC participants will not be retroactively rewritten back to the start of the WFNJ activity date.  In all cases, child care arrangements and supports can only be written effective the date the FFN or in-home provider has met all health and safety requirements.

All Child Abuse Record Information (CARI) inspections, CPR and First Aid certifications, and orientation must occur before an in-home or FFN provider is approved and eligible to receive payment. For more information on the orientation, download the attached flyer. All providers receiving subsidy payments are subject to regular and unannounced monitoring. 

The following are the new health and safety requirements for FFN and in-home providers:

·        -   Orientation

o   Review of prospective provider requirements

o   Child care programs and eligibility policies

o   ECC requirements and payment policies

o   Provider Discontinuation policies due to program violation and/or fraud

o   Child abuse and neglect reporting requirement

o   Availability of professional development training

o   Written information and materials on prevention of infectious disease, child immunization records, medication administration, evacuation plans, nutrition, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS)

·         - A Child Abuse Record Information (CARI) background check for the prospective provider and all members of the household   who are at least 14 years of age (completed annually)

·         -  An FFN Home Inspection Checklist and provider interview

·         -  Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification (completed biennially)

·         -  First Aid training
