Lexie's Law

Lexie's Law is a Kansas law passed in 2010 which requires a child care license for all providers caring for unrelated children, increases minimum education requirements for providers applying for a license, improves health and safety requirements, strengthens the child supervision requirements, and permanently prohibits anyone who has had a child care license revoked from receiving another one.

The law also requires inspections for child care programs every 12 months and requires the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to maintain an online system of child care records to give families access to compliance history. Read more key points on the KDHE website.
