Respite Child Care Center Services

*Licensing Type Coming Soon* 

“Respite Child Care Center” means a facility for the purpose of providing temporary twenty-four-hour group care for three or more children or youth who are placed in certified foster care homes or approved non-certified kinship care homes, and children or youth with open cases through a regional accountable entity. A respite child care center is not a treatment facility, but rather its primary purpose is providing recreational activities, peer engagement, and skill development to the children and youth in its care. A respite child care center serves children and youth from five years of age to twenty-one years of age. A respite child care center may offer youth in its care for only part of a day. “Respite Child Care” means an alternate form of care to enable caregivers to be temporarily relieved of caregiving responsibilities.
