North Carolina has a cutoff similar to what we have noticed of other states: 4 hours. North Carolina feels if a provider has more than 2 unrelated children for more than 4 hours a day, this daycare provider needs to look at getting licensed.
Furthermore, North Carolina has two different types of child care centers that the state feels the need to license and regulate:
- Family Child Care Home
- Child Care Center
You can already see how what officials are trying to keep their eye on. We will discuss North Carolina's licensing further in the next few weeks.
