Child Care Licensing
The original licensing law, passed in 1919, placed the licensing authority with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The department administers the licensing law as a preventive program to assure that out-of-home care for children will not be exploited, unsafe or unhealthy. The main purpose of the law is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of children receiving care away from their parents and their home. The law is also a consumer protection law assuring parents that the care their children receive meets minimum standards. Our Spanish language interpreter is available for all services.
