The State of Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning is the state agency responsible for supervising and licensing child care and day care centers in Georgia. Child safety advocates and educators recommend that more strict training and education requirements be put in place for administrators and lead teachers in day care centers. By enacting and enforcing such regulations, day care providers and lead teachers will be required to go through training and education which, in turn, will make them more informed and knowledgeable about their responsibilities as child care providers. It is vital that children, especially toddlers and infants, are cared for in an environment that is clean and supervised by alert, knowledgeable and educated staff members.
