In Alabama and a number other States, day care centers can be broadly separated into three groups: Licensed, Unlicensed by Exemption, and Unlicensed by Violation. While the licensure of a day care center does not guarantee that a day care center is free from risks, hazards, and negligence, the licensure of a day care center does provide for important oversight by the State. With oversight, there is usually voluntary compliance with the applicable day care and child care rules, regulations, staffing, training, and safety standards. Many parents are not qualified to know what the required staff to child ration should be or what training should be completed for child care providers. Furthermore, there is a certain value to having rules and regulations in place to guide a day care center as what needs to be in place to obtain a day care center license and to keep such a license.
