(b) A child care facility may not admit a child when the child's admission would place the child care facility outside of the conditions on the child care facility's license.

If the child care facility has reason to believe that, even with reasonable accommodation, the child care facility cannot meet the needs of the child, the child care facility may deny admission to the child.
