The provider shall also notify parents of notice of violations or citations issued to the provider or any helper in the family day care home. If the change in household size or composition involves a person 15 years of age or older residing at the residence or being present on the premises on a regular basis, the individual must pass a background check within 90 days. If an individual residing at the residence or present on the premises on a regular basis does not pass a background check, the individual must be removed from the residence immediately upon failure to pass the background check or the day care is in violation and the registration of the day care may be suspended or revoked pursuant to the provisions of § 92.190.
