Contemporary Issues in Licensing: Building and Physical Premises Safety in Child Care

In a series of reports about contemporary issues in licensing, this report addresses how state child care licensing agencies coordinate in various ways with other state and local authorities to address building and physical facility safety and ensure that monitoring is efficient and not duplicative. States’ sometimes complicated monitoring practices are described, and questions for consideration on effective coordination strategies are offered. The report is organized into four sections: Environmental Health; Fire Safety; Playgrounds; and Building and Zoning. Within each of these sections, standards and oversight and state licensing agencies’ roles in the coordination of inspections and standards are described.
