Using the Monitoring Cost Estimation Calculator

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance;
Date Issued: January, 2018
Publisher(s): National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance
Description: The Monitoring Cost Estimation Calculator aims to help child care licensing agencies and Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) lead agencies project the annual caseload and cost of monitoring and supporting licensed and license-exempt child care providers. The National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance (ECQA Center) developed the calculator in response to the needs of states, territories, and tribes, as they make critical decisions regarding monitoring, caseloads, and cost projections. Licensing agencies and CCDF lead agencies may need additional staff to meet the requirements of the CCDF regulations that pertain to monitoring licensed and license-exempt child care providers and the ratio of licensing inspectors to child care providers. This document includes general guidance on using the tool and considerations regarding each cost category included in the Monitoring Cost Estimation Calculator. (author abstract)
