Licenses and monitors child care providers and facilities. Provides support for people and organizations that are interested in starting child day care programs in their communities. As a general rule, any child day care program planning to serve three or more children for more than three hours a day on a regular basis must obtain a license or registration by showing the child day care program meets requirements that the state has established to help promote the health and safety of children in care.

Searching by different types of care, such as family day care or day care centers is also possible and information on the program including contact information, address, capacity, when it first opened and the current status of its license or registration is provided.
