In the state of Connecticut, child day care centers licenses are handled by the State. However as part of that licensing process, an environmental inspection of the premises has to be conducted by the district . A District inspection ensures that the drinking water supply is safe, that the indoor and outdoor areas are clean and in good repair, and that facilities are lead free. If the facility prepares food on-site, then the kitchen is also licensed by the district and inspected on a routine basis under the Food Protection Program.
