Legal Requirement

To be a family child care provider, you are legally required by law to have a Fairfax County child care permit or a Virginia state family day care home license.

Providing care without a Fairfax County permit or a Virginia license can result in a $500 fine and a misdemeanor charge. If you are aware of illegal care in your community, please call 703-324-8100.
