Georgia Department Certificate of Registration

What does it mean to be registered as a family day care provider?

Georgia law requires a person providing family day care for pay for three to six children who are not related to the child care provider and who are not members of the providerís household, to be registered under the procedures established by the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) Sec.49-5-1 et seq. Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning registers and monitors family day care providers under the Rules and Regulations for Family Day Care Homes Chapter 290-2-3.

A registration system that has been established by Bright from the Start enables family day care homes to come into compliance with the Family Day Care Rules and Regulations. A provider checks his/her home for compliance and certifies that he/she will maintain compliance with the Rules and Regulations for Family Day Care Homes.

The provider, all other adults who live in the home, and any other adult who assists the provider must undergo a criminal background check.

A Certificate of Registration is then issued by Bright from the Start. The provider is required to re-register annually (is kept on site for your review).
