Safe Sleep Regulations: The Safe Sleep Regulations were approved by the Office of Administrative Law and effective as of August 19, 2020.  We had submitted many comments during the comment period.  Amendments were made that will allow assistants to help meet new requirements.  We were not successful in persuading the Department of Social Services to limit 15 minute sleep inspections to children under one year of age.  Some requirements are for infants under one year, some are for infants up to age 2 years and some are for all children in care.  To see the regulations that begin on page 10, go here.  To see new form required for infants under 12 months of age, go here.
