Comprehensive Legal Services For Child Care Providers

Households with parents who both work outside the home are rapidly increasing, resulting in the need for more quality child care services. Kentucky has met this increased need with extensive statutory and regulatory requirements for child care providers. Child care services must stay compliant with current child care statutes and regulations, as well as keep up with any changes.

The Strause Law Group, PLLC, in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, delivers comprehensive representation to providers of child care services, both ensuring you are in compliance and fighting against any threats to your child care license and continued child care benefits. Our team fights for your license and places great emphasis on staying current with even the smallest changes in the law, which provide our clients with timely and cutting-edge counsel.

Helping Child Care Centers Navigate Kentucky State Law

Our administrative and regulatory compliance attorneys can guide you through the maze of bureaucratic interpretation of regulations to help ensure that you are properly licensed and compliant.

We are frequently called upon to help with the annual re-licensure surveys or complaint investigations that are conducted by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (Cabinet), Office of Inspector General (OIG), and Division of Regulated Child Care (DRCC). In the event a survey results in a Statement of Deficiencies, our lawyers will work with the provider to draft effective Plans of Correction. Moreover, we are frequently retained by Child Care Centers to perform audits in order to secure ongoing regulatory compliance.

Defending Child Care Center Licenses

If your Child Care Center has received a notification of "negative" action from the OIG, concerning its license, whether for a civil monetary penalty (CMP), intermediate sanction, suspension, or revocation, you should immediately seek knowledgeable and experienced help.

Now is the time to be proactive and our lawyers work hard to prevent our clients from receiving any negative action against the center's license. When your Child Care Center is threatened with "negative action" from the state, the center is thrown into the statutory and regulatory process. An attorney who understands and is experienced in this process is a valuable tool to counsel the center during this trying time.

Our lead attorney, Randall S. Strause, former Chief Administrative Law judge, presided over appeals and hearings of Child Care Center licensure matters for the Cabinet. The Strause Law Group, PLLC, has successfully defended Child Care Centers' licenses in hearings and appeals when the Cabinet had wrongfully attempted to close the center by moving to suspend or revoke the provider's license. Our team has successfully reversed an administrative hearing decision where a CMP was leveled against a Child Care Center.

We represent Child Care Centers located throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Whether you own one preschool or a string of day care facilities, an attorney who understands your issues is within reach. Our attorneys do not shy away from taking on challenging issues concerning Child Care Centers.
