Child Care Licensing Survey Series

The National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) and the National Child Care Information and Technical Assistance Center (NCCIC) survey all state child care licensing agencies to compile information about state child care licensing processes and policies for licensing child care centers and small and large/group family child care (FCC) homes. This series focuses on the processes and policies in each state related to licensing program staffing, facility monitoring, and enforcement of licensing regulations. Beginning in 2008, the data are compiled annually.
