SB 69 – Expanding the Childcare Definition

Last session, the General Assembly passed a bill that expanded the definition of child care to include early education programs for children under the age of kindergarten (i.e. nursery schools or pre-K programs) that are operated by public and private schools (including religious or sectarian institutions). The expansion of the definition applies these programs to the Delaware Child Care Act and its regulation and licensing.

This bill, Senate Bill 69, exempts programs that are run by sectarian or religious institutions.


If these religious schools don’t want to be regulated by the state, then I assume they will be happy receiving no taxpayer money going forward.

As you can see below, this is a Republican bill.
