Summary
The purpose of the 2007 Child Care Licensing Study is to report four aspects of child care licensing from 2007 for all 50 states and the District of Columbia: (1) state child care licensing programs and policies, (2) child care center licensing regulations, (3) small family child care home licensing regulations, and (4) large/group family child care home 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 2007 NARA Child Care Licensing Program Survey to all state child care licensing agencies in July 2007. 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 National Resources Center for Health and Safety in Child Care (NRC) Web site between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2007. The data covers 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.
