    Hi, Iowa makes a distinction between a child care home and a child development home based on the number of enrolled children. A child care home serves five or fewer children. Six or more children constitute a child development home. Another category, a group day care, serves between 11 and 16 children full time. Each child care home or child development home in Iowa has to obtain a certificate of registration. It is an honor system where the certificate is awarded based on the child care provider's answers on the application form. A new certificate of registration has to be obtained every year. The certificate has to be displayed in a visible place in the child care home.

    To find out about the laws for home daycare in Iowa, click on that state at the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Childhood Education's website. The laws that govern home daycare in Iowa are in the Iowa law code section 237A.3. The web site is: http://web.legis.state.ia.us/IACODE/1999/237A/3.ht... JOSA
