Handicare is a child care facility licensed by the State of Iowa and follows all the rules and regulations as outlined by the Child Care Licensing Standards. A copy of these standards is available by request or can be found on the DHS website as Chapter 109 of the administrative rules. Many of the policies and procedures in the manual were taken directly from Caring for Our Children, Health and Safety Standards, third edition.
The manual is designed to make you familiar with Handicare’s policies and procedures. It is by no means comprehensive, but will help by answering many of the questions you may have so that you can concentrate the bulk of your efforts on enjoying our program.
Handicare’s policies and procedures are developed by a volunteer board of directors consisting of parents and community business partners.
