Models for Day Care Licensing (Draft).
Office of Child Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.; Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC.
A draft model for day care licensing, developed as a part of a three phase national study of day care licensing and sponsored jointly by two federal agencies, is presented. The objectives of the project are: (1) Determine the status of licensing in the various states and the extent to which the licensing process might be a deterrent to future expansion of day care facilities; (2) Develop model statutes, codes, regulations and administrative procedures for possible future adoption by state and local government; and (3) Present the models to national and regional conferences and local officials in such a way as to clarify the benefits and encourage their adoption by state and local governments. In Phase II, six task forces, comprised of experts from many disciplines involved in day care licensing, met for a week and produced a set of coordinated models for day care licensing. The six models which emerged cover the following areas: legislation, zoning, fire safety and codes, health and sanitation, administration, and staffing and program requirements. These models are intended to be a basic framework for licensing day care facilities and are designed to improve the licensing process through a cohesive approach to reform of state and local care licensing.
