Treatment in a regulated children's center: A regulated child center (or child care) is a facility that must comply with strict rules or laws imposed by government agencies. These rules or laws exist to ensure the safety and well-being of children enrolled in these facilities.

Regulated daycare centers must follow rules on safety, child-size, health, staff-to-child ratio (for example, one teacher for every three children), food handling, behavior management, and programming, to name a few. Child care centers that do not follow these rules will not be allowed to run a child care business. 

In addition, the rules are different in each country or province. For this reason, it is important that you contact the state child care agency in your state or province that has eligibility requirements.

Licensed daycare centers must also offer structured programs for children. A structured program consists of age-appropriate activities that help children develop their skills. 

Home care service provider: Care at the provider's home is usually referred to as home daycare, family kindergarten, or daycare. Permission is generally required when the number of children being raised in a provider's household exceeds the legal limit.
