What if the director does not meet the minimum qualifications?

(1) If the director does not meet the requirements in WAC 170-295-1010, you must have a program supervisor who:
(a) Meets all the qualifications of WAC 170-295-1010;
(b) Oversees the planning and supervising of the center's learning and activity program to ensure that practices meet the WAC, are varied and developmentally appropriate; and
(c) Performs on-site program supervisory duties twenty hours or more a week and is not included in the staff to child ratio. If we request it, you must provide documentation of the twenty hours or more a week on site supervisory duties for the program supervisor.
(2) If the director does not meet the minimum requirements in WAC 170-295-1010 the director must have had at least one three credit college class in early childhood education or development.
(3) One person may be both the director and the program supervisor when qualified for both positions. The director or program supervisor must be on the premises for the majority of the hours that care is provided. If temporarily absent from the center, the director or program supervisor must leave a competent, designated staff person in charge who meets the qualifications of a lead staff person.
(4) The director or program supervisor may also serve as child care staff when that role does not interfere with management and supervisory responsibilities.
