I just came across this article for those of us who were unable to attend the May 17th hearing on the proposed regulations. I liked it because the article states some of the concerns that providers had about the proposed regulations. You can also download and listen to the hearing.
Some highlights I found from the live tweets were:
1:48 PM @KansasWatchdog: Insurance counselor at KDHE hearing says proposed regulations have good intentions but overly burden child care providers
2:22 PM @KansasWatchdog: Provider says touching a child every 15 minutes when napping is not common sense.
2:34 PM @KansasWatchdog: Child care provider at KDHE hearing concerned that new regulations will result in less diversity in services; wonders about KDHE’s purpose.
2:54 PM @KansasWatchdog: Child care provider says new touching regulation while sleeping would provide false sense of security to parents about SIDS issue.
Find the article here.
