What are the requirements for both child care centers and child care homes?

Some of the physical requirements for both kinds of care providers include:

  • Receiving approval of the Office of Child Care, the fire department and local agencies
  • Providing care in approved areas of the facility only
  • Posting license or registration so it can be seen easily by parents
  • Offering a program of both indoor and outdoor activities that are appropriate to the children’s ages, needs and capabilities
  • Discipline procedures must be appropriate to the children’s age and maturity levels; no corporal punishment is allowed
