NOTE TO PARENT/S or GUARDIAN/S: The licensing authority for this program is the Bureau of Licensing and Certification, Child Care Licensing Unit. Child care programs are required to post a copy of the statement of findings and corrective action plan for the most recent visit in a location which is accessible to parents, and must maintain copies of the statement of findings and corrective action plan for the preceding visit and make them available for parents to review upon request. Statements of findings and corrective action plans are also available on-line at http://childcaresearch.dhhs.nh.gov or by calling the unit at 1-800-852- 3345, extension 9025 or 603-271-9025.
During visits to programs licensing staff speak with children regarding the care they receive at the program if in the judgment of the licensing staff the children's response would be valuable in determining compliance with licensing rules. Licensing staff are experienced in working with children and trained to speak with children in a manner that is respectful and non-leading. Children will remain with their class or group during these conversations with licensing staff, and at no time will a child be forced to speak with a licensing coordinator. If licensing staff believes your child may have specific information regarding an alleged event at the child care program, and determines that it is best to interview your child separately and not with their class or group, please indicate your preference among the following options:
