As of February 1, 2020, the Office of Early Childhood, Division of Early Care and Learning, will no longer be accepting Legal Exemption Applications.
You may still operate as an exempt child care facility as long as you meet the criteria for exemption, but, you no longer need to submit an application nor do you need a declaration letter.
If you do not meet the requirements to operate your program or facility without a child care license, please visit the Child Care Licensing and Administration webpage to learn about the licensing process. You may also contact our office at 303-866-5948 or 1-800-799-5876.
For further information regarding exemptions please refer to Colorado Revised Statute 26-6-103.
