Child care licensing regulations are designed to reduce the risk of harm to children while they participate in out-of-home care. In examining national research, state statistics and the best practices of other states, Ohio has identified the Ohio Administrative Code rule non-compliances that could lead to the greatest risk of harm to children.

The most egregious non-compliances are considered “Serious risk” and are assigned 6 points. “Moderate risk” non-compliances are assigned 3 points. All other non-compliances are considered “low risk” and assigned 1 point. Non-compliances may lead to additional inspections and requirements.

A program will not be eligible for a star rating or a star rating may be reduced or removed if a program has a six point serious risk, or a total of eighteen points of SRNC and MRNC serious and moderate risk non-compliances, in a twelve month period.
