Child care licensing is an important step to setting up a preschool, child care center, or in-home daycare and can also be a complex and confusing process. We explain the difference between child care licensing vs accreditation, how to apply for a child care license, and the accreditation standards for early childhood. There are a number of child care accreditation programs. An example would be the standards for NAEYC. In-home daycare licensing will usually differ from center-based daycare license requirements. Further differentiating your business includes advanced early learning standards and higher levels of child care accreditation requirements. We can help guide you through the child care licensing and accreditation process.
