Complex issues associated with the siting of child care homes and centers continue to appear on the agendas of communities nationwide. This report shows how planners can encourage quality child care while they balance the needs of other residents. Particular attention is focused on the misconceptions related to small child care facilities found in private homes across the country. It reviews federal and state laws, programs, and policies and highlights innovative local programs to improve child care options. The report also explains how to use exactions and zoning bonus programs to achieve child care goals. The authors also point out pitfalls that may occur in new regulation. The appendices include sample ordinances and a list of contacts.
