2012 Leaving Children to Chance

NACCRRA assessed state policies for small family child care homes, where up to six children are cared for in the home of the provider for compensation.

The maximum number of points a state could receive is 150. Sixteen states scored  zero. Of the states that scored points, the average score was 69, which equates to 46 percent – a failing grade in any classroom. Family child care in the United States is characterized by weak state inspection standards, incomplete background checks, weak  training requirements, weak early learning standards and weak basic health and safety standards.
