What is a Self-Declaration Document?
The self-declaration document may be issued to an individual who wishes to care for 5 of fewer children, under the age of 12. No more than 3 of those children may be under the age of 24 months. A provider must also count thier own children who are under the age of 12. See North Dakota Self-Declaration Rules for more information.
Self-declaration documentation and licensing are similar, but a self-declaration document is not a child care license.
Take some time to compare the requirements and benefits of self-declared documentation and licensing. You will see that licensed providers must meet a few more requirements, but they also gain some valuable benefits.
