What is Article 47 and why do I need to understand about compliance?

Article 47 of the NYC Health Code regulates all daycare centers that serve children under six years of age. Article 47 is a 52 page document that outlines all rules, regulations, staffing requirements, health codes and more. All licensed daycare centers must be fully compliant with all the rules and regulations in Article 47. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene conducts unannounced site inspections and will assess your site in detail. Violations lead to thousands of dollars in fines and you will be summoned to court. In the worse case scenario, inspections can even lead to the closing of specific classrooms or entire the entire site. As an owner, you must understand daycare compliance.

Why do we need a professional consultation if all of the information is listed in Article 47 and 81?

Great question! Although any individual can read Article 47 and 81, it is hard to understand the big picture and how to implement all the rules so that your daycare is fully compliant. Here’s the fact: Daycares receive violations all the time (general violations or critical violations). Staff medicals and child paperwork continue to be one of the biggest issues with centers. Educational directors know what the DOHMH requires yet centers continue to make simple yet critical mistakes on paperwork. Top quality daycares have a solid system in place and that’s exactly what we do. Our job is to make sure your center is in full compliance and that you have a good system in place to avoid these critical violations.

How often do we need consultation?

It really depends on your administration and Educational Director. Running a daycare center is no easy feat. If you have an Educational Director who is not well versed with Article 47, we advise you to take immediate action and train your Director. Usually one consultation every 6 months works for daycare centers that already have a system in place. Other daycares require consultation on a monthly basis due to poor administration communication and staffing issues.

What if after the consultation our staff is not adopting to the standards they were taught?

The educational director plays a strong role in ensuring all staff adhere to the best practices. Therefore, it’s critical that your educational director is well versed in compliance. If your center has issues with staff, we recommend your educational director to conduct short trainings on a weekly basis.

After I receive the detailed report from your compliance officer, what do I need to do?

As an owner of a daycare, it is your responsibility to fully comply with Article 47 of the NYC Health Code. Our compliance officers will recommend specific corrective actions that your center must make as soon as possible. We understand that you are running a business, however, running a daycare center cannot be strictly about profits and losses. Owners who are negligent and fail to comply can face strict consequences.
