Child Care Aware published a very significant report (Child Care Aware of America’s Child Care Licensing Database: Initial Findings) on state licensing throughout the USA. It builds upon their innovative reports “We Can Do Better“. This new report series utilizes Caring for Our Children Basics as the comparison tool in looking at the state’s licensing rules and monitoring systems. It is an absolutely brilliant approach to being able to look at state’s rules from a national perspective and I applaud Child Care Aware for taking this on. Here is a copy of the report and links to their webpage which contains additional information about the child care licensing data base.
