In California and other States, parents rely on day care centers, schools, after school programs, camps, and gyms for child care. In most instances, the children are supervised in a caring environment. Depending on the State, size, and location of the child care facility or program, the child care center may or may not be required to have a day care license by the applicable licensing authority.

For instance, in California, day care and child care provided by a gym are not regulated by the State agency authority. As such, these facilities are not supervised or monitored aas a licensed day care center facility. While many such facilities are safe and provide adequate supervision, the lack of regulations and oversight can be troubling for a parent. See California Day Care Centers at Gyms Are Not Licensed.
