Serious risk rules have been identified as presenting the
greatest risk of harm to children. The serious risk rules were
identified by a workgroup with statewide representation from
diverse stakeholder groups.
If a program has a non-compliance with any of these rules, it
will prevent them from being eligible for a Star Rating until they
have had a regular licensing visit without any serious risk
non-compliances. A serious risk non-compliance at
a program that is Star Rated may result in a
warning, suspension or removal of the Star Rating.
