Child Care Aware of America’s Licensing Benchmark Project

Child Care Aware of America (CCAoA) has published a very significant new publication: The Child Care Licensing Benchmark Project building on the very important work they have been doing over the past 15-20 years related to child care center and home licensing standards at the state level (State Report Cards). This latest project and publication takes that work to the next level. It clearly highlights the importance of Caring for Our Children Basics, the voluntary national standards for health and safety in child care programs.

Here is a copy of the publication:

I encourage individuals to go to CCAoA’s website for additional information regarding this very important and significant project.
