Washington Day Care Centers

As is common in many other states, the state of Washington demands that all employees of Washington day care centers submit to detailed background checks that go into not only the records of the FBI and fingerprint records maintained by local law enforcement, but also the sexual offences databases. There are also comprehensive medical examinations that preclude diseases such as communicable tuberculosis, as well as special scans for AIDS and HIV. Educational requirements are also high, particularly for center directors. The government also requires both an initial orientation program for the staff, as well as at least ten hours of child-care related training every year. This training must also include the basics of child safety. It is only after all these requirements, as well as the location and safety requirements of the centers itself, are met, that Washington day care centers are granted a license. Additional inspections are of course conducted to ensure that the requirements are adhered to.
