Child Care Reporting--Care Type


Type of Care

Description

The Type of Care code describes the setting (licensed or license-exempt category) in which the Early Education and Support Division (EESD)-subsidized services were provided to the child in the report month. Children may have more than one Type of Care in a report month.

Where to Find It

On the CD-9600 form, look in box 9,"Type of Care Code" in Section IV, "Data on Children."

Rules and Guidelines

  • This information is required.
  • [CDD-801B only] If the child had more than one EESD-subsidized Type of Care in the report month, information on each type that is subject to CDD-801B reporting must be reported. Click here to see the list of Program Codes that must be reported.
  • [CDD-801A only] If the child had more than one EESD-subsidized Type of Care in the report month, information on each type must be reported.
  • A provider can have more than one Type of Care in one report month. (For example, a relative takes care of the child in her own home [07] and in the child's home [05] on different days in the same month.)
  • [CDD-801A Only] If a child receives care from one provider (same Provider FEIN/SSN and Type of Care combination) but at two locations that have different zip codes, report this as if the child had two providers during the month. All the information would be the same except for the Provider Zip Code.
  • Remember to change the Services Date if the Type of Care changed from the prior reporting month or changed during the month.
  • There are only eight possible choices:

    02 - Licensed family child care home
    03 - Licensed large family child care home
    04 - Licensed center-based care
    05 - License-exempt in child's home by a relative
    06 - License-exempt in child's home by a non-relative
    07 - License-exempt outside the child's home by a relative
    08 - License-exempt outside the child's home by a non-relative
    11 - License-exempt center-based care

One or more duplicate records for this family. [801A File Transfer]
or
The provider/type of care already exists for this child's services. [801A Web Input]
Problem

For agencies submitting their CDD-801A via an electronic file:

  • Two identical rows in your file, or
  • Two nearly identical rows in your file. The only difference between the rows is the program code. This could occur if a child changed programs during the report month.

For agencies submitting their CDD-801A via Web Input:

  • Duplicate provider information has been entered for the same child. This means you are trying to add a Type of Care for a Provider FEIN/SSN that already exist for this child.
Solution

Electronic File Transfer: Delete one of the duplicate rows in the electronic file or correct the information in the identified rows to reflect the family, child, and provider information. In the case where a child received services from the same provider but during the month, but changed programs (i.e., from CSPP to CCTR) during the month, report both program codes for the same provider in the same row under Program Code 1 and Program Code 2.

Web Input: The information provided under the Provider FEIN/SSN and Type of Care has been entered twice. Verify information under each type of care displaying the error. Correct the information as necessary. In the case where a child received services from the same provider but during the month, but changed programs (i.e., from CSPP to CCTR) during the month, report both program codes for the same provider under Program Code 1 and Program Code 2.
