You've come to the right place if your a new parent wondering what child care is all about. One of the first questions you may have is, “What are the different kinds of childcare ?"

There are many types of childcare that are available and my job is to tell you what each one is about. So first of all lets start with defining the different types.

Types of Children’s Daycare Centers

Family daycares are established in a home and are typically licensed for up to 8 children. Other states may have different regulations.

Larger numbers of children in locations that are usually housed in commercial buildings are called “group centers”. The number of children present at that location is based on the building’s size and capacity.

Definitions of Types of Home Family Child Care Centers are as following according to Wisconsin State Rules and Regulations:

  • Licensed Child Care Centers: A licensed child care center provides care for 9 or more children in a group facility

  • Family Child Care Program: A family child care provider takes care of children in his/her own home.

    Licensed Family Child Care: Licensed family child care providers can provide care for up to 8 children dependant upon their ages. He/she has completed a child care licensing class and must complete 15 hours of in-service training each year ( State of Wisconsin regulation, please check your state).

    Certified Family Child Care Home: Certified family child care providers can provide care for up to 6 children, depending upon their ages. A certified provider has completed a 20 hour family child care certification and must complete 5 hours of in-service training each year.

    Provisionally Certified Family Child Care Home: Provisionally certified family child care providers can provide care for up to 6 children, depending upon their ages.

    These definitions should hopefully give you a greater understanding of how child care centers are separated. Your first choice should be deciding on whether you want your child attending a group or family center. Once you have figured out this question, proceed in choosing the correct provider.
