What are the child care options in Alabama?
The child care choices in Alabama are:
- Child Care Centers
- Day Care Group Homes
- Family Day Care Homes
Day Care Group Homes are smaller than Child Care Centers (no more than twelve children). These businesses must have at least two caregivers and must be licensed.
Family Day Care Homes are smaller even operations that typically operate at the caregiver's home. In these cases, one caregiver may care for no more than six children. Although these are more informal they still require a license to operate.
