"In this process paper, we describe how Child Care Aware® of America, in partnership with national stakeholders developed a child care licensing database in 2017. We are now excited to announce that we’ve developed a revised set of child care licensing standard benchmarks, a scoring rubric and a shareable state snapshot resource, the 2020 Child Care Licensing Benchmark Project." ~ Child Care Aware of America
