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 statutes and regulations, as well as keep up with any changes.
With offices in Louisville and Lexington, Strause Law Group, PLLC, delivers comprehensive representation to providers of child care services, defending against any threats to our client’s child care license and continued child care benefits. Our team has an expansive understanding of state and industry requirements. We leverage this insight to design straightforward compliance programs that are easy to understand and adopt, allowing our clients to retain their licenses.
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.
Our lead attorney, Randall Strause, is a former chief administrative law judge and presided over appeals and hearings of child care center licensure matters for the Cabinet. The Strause Law Group 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 also has successfully reversed an administrative hearing decision where a CMP was leveled against a child care center.
