California Day Care Centers

The state of California has legislation that states that California day care centers (or indeed any private or public institution that has the care of a child unrelated to the owner of the establishment), be required to have a license. Nevertheless, the level of safety required by the state of California is far less than that required by other states of child care centers that function within their boundaries. Of course, there are monitoring inspections that are routinely unannounced, as well as complaint inspection that similarly work on an unscheduled and unannounced basis, but this only ensures that staff and educational standards are met, and ignores certain core safety issues. Other than these inspections, the state has also made it mandatory for staff in California day care centers to undergo an orientation program, as well as to be up to date in fire rules and fire safety protocols. There are also considerable educational requirements that staff members are required to meet.
