Footnotes

* An enforcement action is a sanction or penalty that the Department of Children and Families may impose to gain a child care center's compliance with administrative rule. An enforcement action only pertains to licensed care -- not to certified care. On the date indicated above, an enforcement action was issued by the Department to address a violation of one or more administrative rules. The center can dispute an enforcement action through an appeal. If there is an appeal, this is also indicated above. If no decision is listed for an appealed action, contact the appropriate Department Regional Office for more information. The Department may resolve an enforcement action through a stipulation agreement with the licensee. The Department can also issue a warning letter which is not an enforcement action and does not have appeal rights

** Any violations included in an enforcement action are both displayed next to the enforcement action and displayed in the listing of violations. Forfeitures are displayed next to their action type, and forfeiture amounts are identified next to each violation

To obtain more detail or more history on regulatory compliance, contact the Licensing Regional office.
