Child Care centers are permitted by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE). For more information about the Division of Child Development and Early Education, go to:  http://ncchildcare.dhhs.state.nc.us/general/home.asp

Environmental Health staff review all proposed child care center applications and conduct pre-opening visits to approve building standards, water/wastewater supply and childhood lead hazards.

Child Care centers are inspected at least twice per year by an Environmental Health Specialist. During these inspections, the Environmental Health Specialist observe and communicates with facility personnel about procedures related to diaper changing, food service and preparation, storage of chemicals and medicine as well as general sanitation. Child Care centers receive a score based on the number of violations found during the inspection. There is a demerit system in which a classification of superior, approved, provisional or disapproved is assigned based on the demerits received.
