Registered License-Not-Required Child Care Providers
Becoming an RLNR
Registered License-Not-Required child care providers, or RLNRs, offer care in their own home to a maximum of two children, or one sibling group. Children who are related to the RLNR do not count towards this number.
While not needing a license to operate, RLNRs are registered with their local CCRR. To maintain their status, they must complete a number of health, safety, and training requirements.
RLNRs are added to a CCRR’s database, and may be referred to parents who are searching for child care.
In addition, parents who send their children to an RLNR, and apply for the Affordable Child Care Benefit, are eligible to receive a higher level of funding than if they used an unlicensed child care provider.
The Richmond CCRR supports a growing number of RLNR child care programs in our community. If you’re interested in starting one of your own, or would simply like more information, don’t hesitate to contact us.
