I live in WA state where we are allowed a philosophical exemption.

I'm filling out paperwork for my 2 year old to enter daycare. It is a non-profit run by a church. The paperwork says that "all newly enrolled children must be fully vaccinated." Still, the vaccination record that they gave me to fill out has a section to fill out for philosophical exemption.

Can they refuse him?

i dont know about your particular situation, but YES a private daycare/school, etc, can refuse your child on the basis that s/he is not vaccinated. Private Institutions are allowed to make their own exceptions, as far as I have understood it.

If they have a place to indicate ~ then chances are they accept the exemption. Private institutions do have the right to deny the exemptions but I would think that if they did deny the exemptions then there would not be a place for indication on the form.

FTR, my DS is in a church morning program 2 days weekly and he is not vaxed. The form I was given gave no indication of exemption ~ but I just attached our little statute signed by me and attached it to the physical form.

I think a private institution can only deny unvaxed kids if they do not accept ANY public funds of ANY kind.

This is true. According to my understanding, priviate institutions receiving ANY public money MUST accept a vax exemption. FWIW, I am in Washington and neither of my kids are vaxed-I've had no issues with daycare centers for them or for myself (I was a preschool teacher for a long time before I decided to move into the property management field)>

This is a licensed home childcare center and DSHS is paying for my child's tuition. I'm assuming this means that they are not truly considered "private."
