Child Care Centers

Overview

The 61,000 child care centers in the US provide care for infants and children, and offer services out of dedicated facilities (private centers) or residences (home-based centers). Most child care centers are small, independent operations – 80% have a single location and 80% employ less than 20 workers.

Potential for Liability 

Providing care for children is a high stakes operation, where even small accidents and errors can have severe consequences.

High Turnover 

Finding and retaining permanent staff is a problem for the child care industry due to low wages, lack of benefits, long hours, and challenging work.
