Childcare Licensing

Childcare Licensing (CCL) supports childcare providers to meet KDHE childcare regulations through educating, connecting, and listening.  They are seen as a partner to ensure that the childcare workforce is robust and has the resources needed to care for the children in our community. 

Serving Reno and Harvey Counties

Call and talk to childcare Licensing

Reno County seeks to ensure safe and healthy childcare facilities in Reno and Harvey Counties. We assist providers with education, resources and referral, code compliance and regulation navigation. Reno County works with partners and local stakeholders to increase childcare facilities while bolstering the quality of care in our communities.

Reno County receives a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. This grant helps safeguard children from harm by:

  • establishing and enforcing the requirements for the operation of childcare facilities
  • increasing the state-wide availability of regulated facilities that meet or exceed standards
  • reducing predictable health and safety risks to children in childcare
  • providing consumer protection for children and families
  • providing public awareness of the need for quality childcare
  • conducting timely and accurate inspections.
