Ever wonder how you could become a licensed child care provider?​

Child Care Licensing & Centers

Any person caring for unrelated children on a regular basis is required by Colorado law to obtain a child care license.

  • A license is not required if you are only caring for children from one family.

  • Licensing is not expensive. It costs about $100.

  • The licensing process is not lengthy. It typically takes four to eight weeks.


Steps to Become Licensed

1. Call Laura Cronin in Youth and Family Services at 970-668-9186 for a free licensing packet, or visit the Colorado Department of Human Services website.

2. Complete the necessary paperwork:

  • Application

  • Fingerprint cards

  • Medical evaluation (signed by a health care professional).

3. Complete the necessary trainings:

  • First aid and CPR

  • 15-hour pre-licensing class

  • Universal precautions and medication administration.

4. Complete an inspection with Child Care Licensing Specialist Laura Cronin.
