Registration Requirements for New Day Care Providers

In Oregon, you are required by law to be registered if you provide child care to more than three day care children who are from more than one family, and you do this for more than 70 days in a calendar year; or you receive payment from an agency that requires you to be registered; or you want to participate in the USDA Child Care Food Program.
There are 2 steps to becoming a registered day care provider
 and to participate in the USDA FOOD PROGRAM
Step 1:

PO Box 68365
Milwaukie, Oregon 97268

FAX 503-653-1484

If you are a DHS provider, please call us at 503-653-7626 extension 111
Step 2:

You must attend a Registration Overview Meeting for new child care providers.  At this meeting you will learn and receive a copy of the rules and regulations of operating a day care from your home and will also receive an application to complete and mail to the Office of Childcare.  These meetings are held in most counties and require reservations.  For meeting schedules, locations and reservations, call 503-548-4400
