In Nebraska, a person may operate child care for three or fewer children without having a license issued by the department. Anyone who provides child care to four or more children from different families must be licensed as a child care provider.
There are five license types:
License Exempt: Home care provided outside the client's home to a maximum of six children from one family or three or fewer children from more than one family.
In-Home Child Care: Care provided to children in their own homes.
