Religious Exemption from licensure Child Care Facilities

One of the purposes of the FCCPSA is to prepare our member Religious Exempt Child Care Facilities (CCF's) for excellence, and we believe well-informed facility administrators will lead the way. One system of developing this process is working through the Inspection and Certification process with the FCCPSA.

The FCCPSA's Inspection and Certification Division is composed of administrators and directors with many years of experience in the practical aspects of overseeing children and in the administration of the child care facility.

The Religious Exemption Certificate demonstrates that the Faith Based Child Care Facility has high standards to ensure a healthy, safe and learning environment for the children and to improve the quality of their care through regulation and consultation. FCCPSA ensures that the Faith Based Child Care Facility Certification standards are met through on-going inspections which in turn will help to prevent substandard operation of any child care facility.

FCCPSA is listed with the Department of Children and Families as an accrediting agency for the Faith Based Child Care Facilities.

FCCPSA is dedicated to recognizing and improving the educational and Christian qualities in child care facilities, regardless of size. We’re committed to building a strong and Godly foundation for children. Under the umbrella of our organization, it is our intent to assist the administrators to teach and train children in Biblical precepts.

The steps to certification are threefold:

The CCF must be a integral part of a church or private school.

Submit a one-time application.

Submit to an on-site inspection.
