Child Care General Licensing

People who want to provide child care in Minnesota must have a License from the Department of Human Services.

IT IS A MISDEMEANOR TO PROVIDE CHILD CARE WITHOUT A LICENSE

Under Minnesota Statutes, section 245A.03, subdivision 2, there are 2 exceptions to this: You may care for your relatives' children (includes grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc) plus one unrelated family without having to be licensed.

You may provide unlicensed child care for a cumulative total of less than 30 days in any 12 month period. The state of Minnesota requires someone to have a family child care license if he/she is caring for children from more than one family that is not related to them.
