Early childhood program licensing exemptions

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Horowitz, Michelle;
Date Issued: January, 2016
Publisher(s): Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes
Description: Background/Context: States use licensing requirements in order to ensure the health and safety of children in their state early childhood programs, by setting a baseline of mandatory requirements all providers who supervise young children should follow. They can help explain if there are gaps in basic health and safety policy that should be addressed, or if there are other high quality practices programs should be adopting. CEELO wanted to determine which states have exceptions to licensing requirements and what those exceptions are. Methodology: The NAECS-SDE listserv is used by members to make announcements, survey states about resources, and gain information on key policy questions. The summaries are not intended for official reports or research, as the information shared is voluntary and not verified as official statements from states. If a member wishes to use the summaries for official reports or research, explicit permission must be granted. CEELO proposed the following question in the listserv for consideration: "Does your state exempt school based pre-K from child care licensing requirements, and if so, why (e.g., limited hours of operation, sponsored by public schools, other systems of oversight)? Please share any background information if available." (author abstract)
