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.
