Child Care Initiative September 17 Event

Tackling Arlington’s Child Care Challenges

Learn about the Child Care Initiative and preview changes that may be proposed to the Zoning Ordinance and Arlington’s local child care codes intended to increase the availability, accessibility, affordability, and quality of child care in Arlington. We would like to receive community input on the following topics:

  • Increasing the maximum number of children from nine to 12 in family day care homes and eliminating or adjusting the use permit requirement
  • Land use standards for family day care homes
  • Parking requirements for center-based and family-based child care programs
  • Group size requirements for center-based child care programs
  • Teacher-child ratio requirements for center-based and family-based child care programs
  • Teacher qualifications for center-based child care programs

Doors open at 6:30! Program starts at 7. Come early to review materials.

Child care available! Must RSVP to cci@arlingtonva.us by Sept. 13 for this free service for kids 3 and older!
