Licensing

The Department of Children and Families Office of Licensing inspects every licensed child care center annually to enforce health, safety and educational program requirements. For inspection records or other information on a specific child care center, call the Office of Licensing at 1-877-667-9845 or visit their website.

Registered family day care homes are monitored by the Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&Rs), which are community-based organizations contracted by the state in each county. To find out if your family day care home is registered, contact your local CCR&R.

All New Jersey youth camps must register annually with the Department of Health and Senior Service's (NJDOH) Public Health Sanitation and Safety Program. Inspections of youth camps are conducted by both the NJDOH and local departments of health. For more information visit their website.
