Child care is providing care for a child outside of their home for any part of a day, by a person other than the child's parents or legal guardians. The purpose of licensing and certification of child care centers and family child care homes is to ensure the health, safety and well-being of children while in care outside of their home.

For more resources about child care, see Bright Stars, a non-profit program.
