Progressive Enforcement

The goal of Child Care Licensing and Enforcement is to regulate, enforce and improve the quality of child care in Broward County.  CCLE seeks to provide child care programs with the information they need to operate in compliance with all applicable standards.  This is accomplished through inspections, education, technical assistance, guidance and positive on-going interactions with providers.  When enforcement action is warranted, the steps in the agencies’ enforcement process are generally sequential in nature and if necessary, progressive and incorporate the provider’s recent noncompliant history. Some violations however, due to their severity, require immediate and impactful intervention.  Depending on the severity and frequency, actions can include technical assistance, notices of violations, administrative fines, probationary licensure status, suspension and license revocation.
