Recommendations for consistent protection in child care

To create a consistent level of essential quality for all children in regularly operating, remunerated care, irrespective of sponsorship, geographic location, and state or federal agency service boundaries, NARA recommends that federal agencies:

2.Include a reasonable set-aside in states’ federal funding for effective licensure at these quality performance standards.

3.Fund the development and maintenance of model statutes and regulations. This would reduce an ongoing, time-consuming, and redundant workload on the states and would further narrow disruptive variability in these foundational documents.

4.Extend invitations to NARA and other knowledgeable groups to consult and assist with the final drafting of these funding requirements, with the selection of implementation methods, and with the design of efficient methods to monitor states’ timely and conscientious adherence to federal standards.

5.Request states to implement these same performance standards in their laws, regulations and regulatory operations as the baseline for all child care settings whether or not federal funds are used. This promotes equal protection and expanded benefits for children while achieving fair competition for providers – outcomes that are in every state’s best interest.
