The facility must be an integral part of church or parochial school, meet the screening requirements pursuant to FLA STAT 402.305 and meet local health requirements in addition to the on-site evaluation process of the agency to ensure compliance with its standards for health, safety and sanitation.

 

In accordance with FLA STAT 402.306, the Department recognizes and exempts from licensure those religiously affiliated programs that meet the following statutory requirements:

 

"The provisions of FLA STAT 402.301-402.319, except for the requirements regarding screening of child care personnel, shall not apply to a child care facility which is an integral part of church or parochial schools conducting regularly scheduled classes, courses of study, or educational programs accredited by, or by a member of, and organization which publishes and requires compliance with its standards for health, safety, and sanitation, and safety and shall meet the screening requirements pursuant to FLA STAT 402, 305 and 402, 3055. Failure by a facility to comply with such screening requirements shall result in the loss of the facilities exemption from licensure."
