Concerns and Complaints
Serious Injury and Death in Child Care
Child care providers are required to report to their Early Childhood Services Licensing Specialist when a child is seriously injured or dies in care, even if it wasn’t the result of a rule violation. They are also required to report when a child is abused or neglected. Each state is required to post aggregate data on these situations.
Child Care License Violations
Child Care Aware® of North Dakota does not license child care programs or investigate violations. If you have a concern regarding a child care program not following licensing regulations please contact your area's Licensing Specialist ➜.
Suspected Abuse and Neglect
Child Care Aware® does not investigate concerns, but, as mandated reporters, Child Care Aware® staff will make an independent report of suspected abuse and neglect to the Statewide toll-free Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting Line at 1-833-958-3500, available 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Central Time. As a citizen, you also have that right. If it's an EMERGENCY and a child is in imminent DANGER, CALL 9-1-1 NOW.
