Match the numbered items on this page with the numbered sections on the Application.
For your information, details on the Application are public information.
1. TYPE APPLICATION - A “New Application” is a request to license both an individual and a home that
are not now licensed. A “Capacity Change” is a request to increase the approved number of children in
an already licensed home. A “Location Change” is a request by a licensee to obtain a new license
when he/she plans to move. An “Update” is, for example, to request a change in your name or phone
number.
2. APPLICANTS - The applicants are the persons who will be responsible for providing child care in their
own home. All applicants must live in the home to be licensed and must be 18 years of age or older to
be licensed to provide child care. A “Yes” check means the applicants are 18 years of age or older.
3a. YOUR HOME ADDRESS - Your home address is the location of the home in which you live and want
to provide care. This is the home that the Licensing Agency will inspect to determine whether it meets
health and safety standards. PHONE NUMBER--Enter your primary phone number.
3b. LIST OF ADDITIONAL COUNTIES - If you have not lived in this county for two years, list all other
counties where you have lived in the past two years.

applicants for providing care. If you are or have ever been licensed or certified to provide care, or if an

licensed/certified; and name, address and phone number of the Licensing Agency. This includes
Foster Family Homes and any other license category.
7. OTHER ADULTS IN THE HOME - List all persons (other than yourself) who live in your home,
including family members, boarders, or other relatives. Do not list the names of persons under 18
years of age (See #8 below). If needed, you may attach additional pages to list all residents. You do
not need to list your spouse if he/she is also an applicant.

in the home to be licensed, have enough money to maintain your home, have basic fire protection, will
stay current and in compliance with licensing laws and regulations, will obtain approval from the
licensing agency whenever you plan to change your license capacity or make changes to your home,
