Partner Message Board

New York Works for Children is happy to share the following messages on behalf of our partners and sponsors.

Are you on an OCFS approved Plan of Study or manage someone who is?

As of 1/1/19, all existing and future Plans of Study for directors and group teachers must be uploaded into the program’s Facility Application and Management System (FAMS) account. Regulators will be notified by email when documentation has been uploaded to FAMS. Approved plans of study and documentation demonstrating continuous progress must be updated and uploaded at least annually.  Regulators will be able to monitor continuous progress within FAMS.  Programs may contact their regional office for assistance.

DOHMH Permitted Day Care Programs

Effective July 1, 2017, and aligned with permit renewal, all  DOHMH permitted day care centers are required to create and maintain active organization accounts in The Aspire Registry.  Programs will receive direct communication from The Aspire in the months leading up to your permit renewal inviting you to an in-person training.
