I danced with this problem earlier this year. In January, the CPS sent out emails to many (all?) licensed preschool locations stating that Open Carry did not change anything and that carry of licensed handguns had always been prohibited. They went into detail about 30.06 and 30.07. I wrote back to them asking their authority to issue the restriction and they quoted a part of the Administrative code. I don't pretend to understand that. The pre-school that I was working with was part of a church and the church did not want to post any signs. Since CPS can audit the pre-school and the license could be suspended for non-compliance (they have a myriad of reasons including not deep enough mulch around playground equipment), the church wrote a statement in to the handbook that the parents must sign, quoting the CPS language. The church was not equipped or willing to contest the CPS wording.
Given the current situation with CPS, I'm hoping that the 2017 Legislature can bring some sanity to their operation.
So basically child care centers are only off-limits if they post 30.06/07 or are in an otherwise prohibited location. Administrative code only applies to the child care facility, not license holders.
Remember that in order to receive 30.06/07 notice, any written communication must be as described in the statute. If the CPS wording doesn't match that, it's not enforceable. (However, verbal notice does not require any specific wording.)
