State laws for licensed child care and ECEAP


Printer-friendly version

Laws that govern licensed child care in Washington are part of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW). State laws are passed by the Washington State Legislature – or by the voters if an initiative – and are signed by the Governor. Laws regarding child care licensed or certified by DEL are located in many sections of Chapter 43.215 RCW.

Laws regarding the state-funded Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) also are in Chapter 43.215 RCW (see RCW 43.215.400 through 43.215.476).
