In Iowa, child care centers / day care centers are regulated by the Iowa Administrative Code – Chapter 109 – Child Care Centers. The purpose of the rules and regulations is to establish minimum requirements for licensed child care centers and pre-schools. These standards cover areas from licensing to supervision to nutrition. It is important for Iowa child care centers that are licensed and subject to these rules and regulations to comply with Iowa law. Working parents in Iowa depend on child care centers to provide for the physical, emotional and educational welfare of children including infants, toddlers, pre-school, and school aged children.
