Summary
The 2014 Child Care Licensing Study provides information collected about child care licensing programs and policies and the regulations for childcare centers, family child care homes, and group child care homes for all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the two U.S. Territories (Guam and the Virgin Islands). The data about States and Territories' licensing policies, including facility monitoring, enforcement of licensing regulations, and licensing program staffing, were gathered by the National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) in the 2014 NARA Child Care Licensing Programs and Policies Survey. NARA sent an online survey to all state child care licensing agencies in September 2014. Respondents submitted their answers via the Internet, and by January 2015, all States had responded. The data from the Licensing Survey cover the following topical areas: <list type="bulleted"> <itm>Number of licensed facilities</itm> <itm>Complaint investigations</itm> <itm>Licensing staff</itm> <itm>Enforcement actions</itm> <itm>Types of inspections</itm> <itm>Licensing information on the Internet</itm> <itm>Frequency of inspections</itm> <itm>Licensing fees</itm> <itm>Frequency of licensing</itm> <itm>Licensing staff requirements</itm> <itm>Inspections and monitoring</itm> <itm>Licensing's role in quality initiatives</itm></list> The child care center licensing regulations used for this study were compiled by the National Center for Early Childhood Quality Assurance from the regulations posted on the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education (NRC) website between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2014. That site is no longer active but directs users to the <a href="https://childcareta.acf.hhs.gov/licensing">National Database of Child Care Licensing Regulations</a>. The licensing regulations data cover the following areas: <list type="bulleted"> <itm>Licensing regulations</itm> <itm>Additional staff training requirements</itm> <itm>Definition of licensed child care centers</itm> <itm>Child-staff ratios and group size</itm> <itm>Staff roles and age requirements</itm> <itm>Supervision of children</itm> <itm>Staff qualifications and ongoing training requirements</itm> <itm>Care of children</itm> <itm>Facility requirements and</itm> <itm>Staff hiring requirements</itm></list> The same web site was used to collect licensing regulations covering the above listed topics for small family child care homes and large/group family child care homes
