  • Type A Home Providers - Care for 7-12 children at one time. However, each staff member can care for no more than six children at one time and no more than three children under the age of two.  
  • Type B Home Providers - Care for no more than six children at one time and no more than three children under the age of two. Children under six years of age-related to the provider (including the provider's children) and residents of the home must be included in total group size.  
  • In-Home Aides   A person who provides child care to a child in the child's own home, not in their home. An In-Home Aide can only care for the children who live in that home.  Link to PDF https://jfs.ohio.gov/cdc/docs/IHA.stm
