Summary
The 2017 Child Care Licensing Study provides information collected about child care licensing programs and policies and the facility requirements for child care centers, family child care homes, and group child care homes for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Limited center regulations data are available for U.S. territories of Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The data about state licensing policies, including facility monitoring, enforcement of licensing regulations, and licensing program staff, were gathered by the National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) in the 2017 NARA Child Care Licensing Programs and Policies Survey. NARA sent an online survey to all state child care licensing agencies in March 2018. Respondents submitted their answers via Survey Monkey, and by January 2019, 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 data about licensing requirements for child care centers, family child care homes, and group child care homes were collected by the National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance from the regulations posted on the <a href="http://childcareta.acf.hhs.gov/licensing">National Database of Child Care Licensing Regulations</a> that were in effect as of December 31, 2017.
