The professional must explain why the household requires protective or preventive child care. Child Care Subsidy staff does not approve an extension unless the statement covers every relevant issue.
The professional's statement must include:
- the names and ages of all children in the household;
- the reason each child needs child care and how it helps to prevent their neglect, abuse, and exploitation;
- the days and hours each child requires child care; and
- the length of time the professional expects care to be needed.
