Legally Exempt Enrollment

The Delaware Opportunities Inc. Child Care Resource and Referral is the enrollment agent for legally exempt (informal) caregivers for families receiving subsidies.  We also provide assistance and support for legally-exempt (informal) caregivers.  Legally exempt means the caregiver is exempt from registering or licensing with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services because they provide care for no more than two non related children for no more than three (3) hours per day or may be caring for only children related to them within the 3rd degree of consanguinity.

Educational training and continued support is provided in a variety of areas, including how to comply with state regulations for medications administration to children in care.
