Child Care Centers

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.
