In home daycare

Are most in home daycares licensed? Or is it mostly just the bigger places that are? I.e. kinder care, Montessori, etc.?

    Yes, most home daycare centers do have licenses, as is required by licensing. There are some license-exempt home centers, but they are reserved for care for relatives, and other special situations. If you are ever curious about whether or not a center is licensed, you can usually fine their license # on their website, or ask to confirm :)

    Many aren’t where I am. Some are. You can find a list online

    In FL they have a state website listing all licensed home daycares as well as the inspections/violations. Maybe your state has something?

    In California, we have licensed and license-exempt care. Here is where public can check the licensed facility detail: https://cdss.ca.gov/inforesources/Community-Care-Licensing/Facility-Search-Welcome In Missouri, there should be Child Care Licensing as well. This should be the site to check: https://health.mo.gov/safety/childcare/find.php
