FAMILY CHILD CARE HOMES (Virginia requires licensing as a FCC home when a provider cares for 6 or more unrelated children).  The VA State legislature passed a new law in April of 2015. As part of that law, beginning in July 2016, all providers who care for 5 or more unrelated children will be required to obtain a license.
