Most Cited Deficiencies in Child Care Homes in 2017

Child care laws and regulations are carefully created with the health and safety of children in mind. Training classes are required during the licensing procedure which give best practices in keeping our children safe and to assist providers in meeting licensing requirements.
Citations for deficiencies can be very costly for child care providers, so don’t come up short at your next visit from licensing. Make sure you put into practice what you have learned. Click this link to see what the most common deficiencies were for last year.

Milestones Matter

Milestones matter! Track your child’s milestones from age 2 months to 5 years with CDC’s easy-to-use illustrated checklists; get tips from CDC for encouraging your child’s development; and find out what to do if you are ever concerned about how your child is developing.

From birth to age 5, your child should reach milestones in how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves. Photos and videos in this app illustrate each milestone and make tracking them for your child easy and fun!

The use of this app is not a substitute for the use of validated, standardized developmental screening tools as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
