Current Events


January 31, 2020 – The Child Care Program Office (CCPO) is pleased to announce the Department of Health & Social Services has adopted regulation changes in Title 7 AAC 57 of the Administrative Code (AAC) effective February 6, 2020, for Child Care Facilities Licensing. These regulation changes comply with the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) health and safety training requirements.

The adopted regulation requires a child care provider to ensure at least one hour of their current twenty-four hour annual training requirement is in a health and safety specific training on the Alaska's Approved Health and Safety Training List.

Child Care Licensing Specialists will be checking personnel records during future licensing inspections to ensure child care providers have met their annual training requirements, based on the individual’s date of hire.
