Under the New Castle County Unified Development Code (UDC), Child Day Care can be provided in two different settings:
1. In the home (with a maximum of 12 children).
2. In a day care center.
For more information, read the Child Day Care Requirements Information sheet linked below.
The rules for each setting are different. However, in all cases the State of Delaware must license child day care.
