TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, RELATING TO CHILD CARE CENTERS OPERATED BY CHURCHES OR RELIGIOUS ENTITIES, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 2924, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Department of Social Services, relating to Child Care Centers Operated by Churches or Religious Entities, designated as Regulation Document Number 2924, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
The Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS) is required to review child care regulations every three years. These proposed regulations replace the current regulations in their entirety. These regulations update current requirements in order to clarify current regulations, meet the United States Department of Health and Human Services (USDHHS) safety guidelines, as well as United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) food and snack regulations, and finally, raises the South Carolina regulations up to minimum child care standards already in place in neighboring states.
