Summary
The purpose of the 2008 Child Care Licensing Study is to report two aspects of child care licensing from 2008 for all 50 states and the District of Columbia (not including Idaho): (1) state child care licensing programs and policies and (2) child care center and family child care home licensing regulations. The study focuses on the processes and policies in each state related to staffing for the licensing program, monitoring facilities, and enforcement of licensing regulations. To collect information on states' licensing policies, including staffing, monitoring, and enforcement of licensing regulations, the National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) disseminated the 2008 NARA Child Care Licensing Program Survey to all state child care licensing agencies in May 2009. Responses were received from all states. The survey focused on the processes and policies in each state related to staffing for the licensing program, monitoring facilities, and enforcement of licensing regulations. The data 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 and</itm> <itm>Licensing's role in quality initiatives</itm></list> The child care center licensing regulations used for this study are those that were posted on the <a href="http://nrckids.org/STATES/states.htm">National Resources Center for Health and Safety in Child Care (NRC) Web site</a>. The 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.
