Child Care Aware® of America assessed state policies for small family
child care homes, where up to six children are cared for in the home of
the provider for compensation.

The maximum number of points a state could receive is 150. Sixteen
states scored  zero. Of the states that scored points, the average score
was 69, which equates to 46 percent - a failing grade in any classroom.
Family child care in the United States is characterized by weak state
inspection standards, incomplete background checks, weak  training
requirements, weak early learning standards and weak basic health and
safety standards.
