Delacare: Requirements for Child Placing Agencies were created to protect the health, safety, and well-being of children who are being adopted or are in foster care.  Child placing agencies are required to follow these rules in order to operate a licensed facility. 


If you are interested in opening a child placing agency, please contact your local Office of Child Care Licensing at 302-892-5800 (NCC) or 302-739-5487 (Kent and Sussex) to schedule an orientation that includes the application process.
