How often do I need a nurse consultant to visit?
T he Connecticut Department of Public Health Child Care Licensing
regulations require that all centers and group homes have weekly health consultant visits, and programs
enrolling children between two and three years of age part day are
required to have a monthly health consultant visit. A minimum of quarterly health consultant
visits shall be made to centers and group homes enrolling only preschool age children.
Weekly-if you enroll children 3-5 years of age in a full day program
Monthly-if you enroll only children between 2-3 years of age in a half day program
4 times per year- if you are a family daycare or group home enrolling children 3-5 years of age
3 times per year- if you are an aftercare program enrolling only children kindergarten and up
