Additional Permit Requirements

The first step in applying for a Fairfax County child care permit is to complete and submit the three required application forms with the application fees. Then the background searches will be completed.

To receive a permit you must also comply with these requirements in the Fairfax County Code:

  • Provide a physician’s statement or tuberculosis test showing all adult household residents are free from tuberculosis.
  • Provide current certifications in first aid and CPR. Here are a few of the organizations in our community that offer First Aid and CRP training and certification. Please note: online CPR and First aid training will not be accepted as certification.
  • Have a written emergency plan and emergency supplies.
  • Have a written child care sick policy.
  • Have a satisfactory fire safety inspection by the Fire Code Official.
  • Have a satisfactory home health and safety visit by the child care specialist.
  • Have up-to-date rabies immunization records for dogs, cats and ferrets.
  • Have a smoke alarm.
  • Have a carbon monoxide alarm (if necessary).
  • Have all fireplaces, chimneys and wood stoves cleaned and inspected.
