Child Care State Licensing Database

Our Research Team is excited to announce the release of our new CCAoA’s Child Care Licensing Database, an innovative tool developed in collaboration with researchers from the University of Miami. The database was developed for policy makers, child care advocates, and providers interested in aligning state child care licensing requirements with Caring for Our Children Basics guidelines.

Explore our story map to learn more about the issues facing millennial parents as well as a nationwide examination of the affordability of full-time center-based care for an infant and of full-time center-based care for two children.
