DEL is implementing a legislatively-mandated pilot project to explore the possibility of licensing out-door, nature-based early learning and child care programs. As part of the pilot project, DEL will explore options for developing a quality rating and improvement system for outdoor preschools. Rules to implement the pilot project are anticipated.
