Chid Care Code Update: Cost Savings
Boise City Code was recently updated to streamline a new child care license and reduce costs for child care providers.
Current Cost* - $81.75
New Cost - $44.75**
(Including background check, license, processing, photo/ID card, etc.)
Idaho Child Protection Registry Check
Current Cost* - $20 per year***
New Cost - $20 every 3 years ($40 savings over 3 years)
2-Year CPR/First Aid Certification (annual estimate)
Current Cost* - $40 per year
New Cost - $40 every other year ($40 savings over 2 years)
* - Changes went into effect in January 2019.
** - Please note that while the update to volunteer licenses will reduce cost, it also means that volunteers will no longer be able to count toward the child: child care provider ratio.
*** - Child Protection Registry Check is currently required for all states lived in within the past 5 years. Each state has their own methodology for processing and fees, so not every scenario can be captured. However, Idaho is required, and can be captured in this analysis.
