Daycare workers are vital to the Hartford community. Caring for other children is an important and very serious job. Proper daycare facilities must be up to the state Basic Building Code, Fire Safety Code, Public Health Code, and local ordinance. As a daycare worker you must be at least eighteen years old and have a high school diploma, or an equivalent certification/540 hours of documented experience. Continued education such as a degree in early childhood development, elementary education, etc. is desired but not always required.
When You Risk Losing Your License
The daycare facility must be licensed through the Division of Community Based Regulation. Failure to meet the minimum standards required by law will lead to a revoked license. Some reasons a license may be revoked are:
Abuse or neglect. Parents must be able to trust that their children are safe and cared for when they are under your supervision. Any abuse or neglect may be reported and lead to a revoked license.
Improper records. Proper records for each child are required, including immunizations, parents information, allergies, restraining orders, etc. Failure to ensure proper record keeping could risk the health of those children in your care.
Health code violation. Children are curious and it is important that the health code standards are met in order to keep them safe.
