    Does "voluntarily" mean you are not a fully licensed child care provider? And does it matter in Loudoun County?

    Voluntary Registration is a form of regulation offered to family day homes that are not required to be licensed. These homes have fewer than six children in care.The program is administered by four agencies that have contracted with the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) to perform this function in a specific area of the state.All adult residents of the applicant's household must undergo a criminal history background check, child abuse registry clearance and a tuberculosis screening.The contract agency makes a home inspection to make sure basic child safeguards are adequate. Upon recommendation by the contract agency, VDSS' Commissioner then issues them a two-year certificate of registration. During two-year period, the contracting agency and VDSS licensing staff monitor a small sample of registered homes for compliance with staffing requirements and a health and safety checklist.

    Hope this helps

    So that means you are recognized/registered by the County as long as you meet their criteria. That's an added bonus for anyone considering you for their childcare. Thank you!
