Mississippi launches online child care licensure database

JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) - The Mississippi State Department of Health has launched an online database of the more than 1,500 licensed child care facilities in the state, including licensing status, inspection reports, complaint investigations, and monetary penalties assigned during routine visits or inspections.

Jim Craig, director of health protection, says for years the website has had a listing of licensed facilities, but this service goes much further.

The online search feature is the first from MSDH that allows parents to locate child care centers or youth camps with specific features such as ages served, after-school care, and special needs services.
