LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

   AB 529, Mullin.  Family day care homes.

   The California Child Day Care Facilities Act, provides for the
licensing and regulation of child day care facilities, including
family day care homes, by the State Department of Social Services.
Existing law authorizes a small family day care home to provide day
care for more than 6 and up to 8 children if certain conditions are
met. 
 Existing law also authorizes a large family day care home to
provide day care for more than 12 children and up to and including 14
children if certain conditions are met.  One of these conditions
applicable to both small and large family day care homes is that at
least 2 of the children be at least 6 years of age.
   This bill would instead allow the above referred condition to be
met if at least one child is enrolled in and attending kindergarten
or elementary school and a 2nd child is at least 6 years of age.

or elementary school and a second child is at least six years of age.
 
   (b) No more than two infants are cared for during any time when
more than six children are cared for.
   (c) The licensee notifies each parent that the facility is caring
for two additional schoolage children and that there may be up to
seven or eight children in the home at one time.
   (d) The licensee obtains the written consent of the property owner
when the family day care home is operated on property that is leased
or rented.
  SEC. 2.  Section 1597.465 of the Health and Safety Code is amended
to read:

   1597.465.  A large family day care home may provide care for more
than 12 children and up to and including 14 children, if all of the
following conditions are met:
