License-Exempt Child Care - Pathways LA

License-Exempt Child Care can be provided by a friend, relative, babysitter who cares for your child in their home or yours, full or part-time. Providers available for this type of care are not required to be licensed since they only care for the children of a single family.

  • This setting may be convenient for the parent
  • Your child may be in familiar surroundings
  • With fewer children, there is less risk of illness than in other forms of care
  • There is typically a lower child to provider ratio

For License-Exempt Child Care speak with friends and family members about being your child care provider.
