Licensing Your Community Child Care Center.
National Urban League, Inc., New York, NY.
The guide is intended to assist community groups in developing preschool programs, offering an outline of some of the procedural steps in organizing a child care program and a description of typical regulations found in State licensing codes governing establishment of such a center. Specific information is given on who may operate a child care center, the general steps necessary to open a center, licensing requirements that must be met, procedures for becoming licensed, and how to begin. It is pointed out that the development of a community program is not simple and that special arrangements may sometimes be necessary, such as establishing a coalition of several community groups or using an established well-known organization to act as fiscal agent on a temporary basis. Additional resources on licensing are listed. (LH)
