Unlicensed Child Care In Minnesota, a person may provide "legally unlicensed care" only if they care for relatives and one unrelated family. This includes the caregiver's own children. A person cannot do unlicensed care if they were ever denied a license, had their license revoked or their license is currently suspended.
There are no safety regulations for unlicensed child care providers!
