*OOHC refers to the provision of care through your family day care service, on a fee for service basis for children placed by a private or government agency which holds legal guardianship of the child, and where the care is for periods greater than 12 continuous hours. It does not apply to those providing regular family day care for children placed by their parents, nor does it apply to those who provide foster care on an individual private basis, arranged outside their family day care service.
