Benefits for Licensed Child Care Providers

Benefits for Cooperating Providers

As a licensed provider, you have a competitive advantage over unlicensed and unregistered providers. Your licensed program is held to a higher standard that provides accountability to health and safety standards enforced by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Becoming a licensed provider creates opportunities to:

  • Become established as a professional in your field;
  • Demonstrate a commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for children;
  • Have an assigned licensing inspector who is available to answer questions and provide technical assistance;
  • Receive increased subsidy payments for eligible children in your care;
  • Be better prepared to participate in VQB5, Virginia's Quality Measurement and Improvement System;
  • Be included in a searchable, free listing of your center or family day home on the VDOE and Child Care Aware of Virginia websites and/or referral services;
  • Use your licensure status as a marketing tool to solicit and educate prospective parents;
  • Influence parents with online health and safety inspection reports;
  • Access relevant, up-to-date training and resources;
  • Be connected to the front line of federal/state child care news and provider requirements;
  • Be eligible to participate in the USDA food program; and
  • Be proud of the quality child care you are providing to your community.
