Child Care Licensing

Child care is an important service to working parents in the community.  Mower County Health & Human Services licenses family child care providers who provide care in their home setting.

Licensed providers must meet state requirements in order to provide healthy, safe, positive care for children during the hours that their parents are not able to provide care.  Licensing ensures that providers have passed a fire inspection and criminal record check.  Licensed providers are also required to attend child care-related training annually.

Licensing staff inspect homes annually and offer ongoing support and educational services upon request.  The highest demand is for infant care and for care during nontraditional hours.
