A Licensee is the owner of a child care center or family child care program that is licensed by ODJFS and is responsible for ensuring compliance with child care rules and regulations. The owner is a person/individual, corporation, business trust, estate, trust, partnership, association, or government entity (ORC 5104.01 & 1.59).
