There are more than 1 million children in about 58,000 licensed child care facilities in California.  The need to assist parents with better information on the safety and quality of these services was highlighted this week in a report issued by the California Legislative Analyst's Office entitled Developing Safety and Quality Ratings for Child Care: Issues and Options (PDF, HTML).  The report outlines a number of different options for improving this information, including providing ratings of child care providers. Today's San Francisco Chronicle has an article on this report.

For those seeking child care services FindLaw's Family Law Center contains a How to Find Good Childcare Checklist that features questions to consider when evaluating a child care provider.
